Product description

Review

“It’s hard to imagine a better story...and it’s hard to imagine a better account” (Chicago Tribune)

“A superlative book...steadily builds suspense until the very end.” (Los Angeles Times Book Review)

“The fascinating inside story of the largest corporate takeover in American history… It reads like a novel.” (Today Show)

“The most piercing and compelling narrative of a deal to date.” (Boston Globe)

“Impressive qualities... delicious scenes... a cinematic yet extraordinarily careful book.” (Ken Auletta, New York Daily News)

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.
