Reviews

"A riveting account that reaches beyond the market landscape to say something universal about risk and triumph, about hubris and failure."--The New York Times

"[Roger] Lowenstein has written a squalid and fascinating tale of world-class greed and, above all, hubris."--Business Week

"Compelling . . . The fund was long cloaked in secrecy, making the story of its rise . . . and its ultimate destruction that much more fascinating."--The Washington Post

"Story-telling journalism at its best."--The Economist
