The end of Wall Street

"Drawing on 180 interviews, including sit-downs with top government officials and Wall Street CEOs, Lowenstein interweaves his analysis with searing profiles on banking CEOs such as the tribal Dick Fuld of Lehman and the bloodless Jamie Dimon of JP Morgan, of government officials from the impulsive Hank Paulson to the cerebral academic Ben Bernanke, and of a very few--notably, the mutual-fund manager Bob Rodrigues--who sounded an early warning. Pulsing with drama, the End of Wall Street is also rich in contextual wisdom." From the book cover.
