From the Back Cover
Barbarians at the Gate has been called one of the most influential business books of all time -- the definitive account of the largest takeover in Wall Street history. Bryan Burrough and John Helyar's gripping account of the frenzy that overtook Wall Street in October and November of 1988 is the story of deal makers and publicity flaks, of strategy meetings and society dinners, of boardrooms and bedrooms -- giving us not only a detailed look at how financial operations at the highest levels are conducted but also a richly textured social history of wealth at the twilight of the Reagan era.
Barbarians at the Gate -- a business narrative classic -- is must reading for everyone interested in the way today's world really works.

This is a rollicking read, fast paced and absorbing. The characters are intriguing, fascinating and downright ugly. Yet the story, especially for a supposedly dull subject, grips you and pulls you in.
You will entertained, disgusted, angry and ride a rollercoaster of emotions but you will not be bored.
