The personification of a facade that builds upon itself by convincing potential clients that Lazard had the secret sauce of which makes something out of nothing. The ability to mesmerize their clients by having underlings doing the extent of the grunt work.. Presenting the finish product with finess.
Bruce Wasserstein comes on the scene and completely takes control of the firm and like a stealth missile gradually takes total control over Lazard. The scheme he employed was marvelous and gut wrenching.
The extreme reaction I had was how much money these firms were making, I was sad because it shows there are a chosen few who because of timing can become insanely wealthy.
I cannot stop listening to this book. Informative - well narrated. This is the best book on Steve Jobs. Historical information was spot - on. Haunted ranks in the top ten of my audiobook collection.
The most memorable moments was Steve last days on this earth. The presentation at the Cupertino city council meeting was illuminating. The narrator made this book come alive. As you know there were two Steve's. The polished Svengali that the attendees at the WWDC events and the tyrannical Steve that his employees experienced daily. At the presentation for 4 S when there were 500 plus wifi connections and his demo was not going as scripted, you witness the tyrannical Steve. Oops. This was priceless.
Arielle DeLisle did an outstanding job. Brought the book alive - voice inflections were perfect. The emotion just oozed through earbuds. Well Done indeed!
Insightful - emotional - in depth look at the worlds greatest CEO. THE MULTIFACTED STEVE JOBS.
Overall this book is a 10! Once you start, you will not be able to stop.
At the top. The excerpt was educational and entertaining. The narrator did an excellent job.
Stephen Pinker, the explanation of adverserial vs conspiratorical. The explanation regarding game theory. "The language of closeness"
Panda's explanation about diabetes. controll of fire and the advent of electricity. Social shift eating.. metabolic disease as it relates to too much tv which causes one to eat too much.
Yes, the revelation about when you eat and the effect of nightime eating and how it affects your liver..
I will buy this book eventually..
top notch. Also enjoyed Enemies, narrated by the same person. Excellent.
When they were throwing away young recruits, by sending into harms way with no real mission or backup..
The changing of command
Who knew? CIA started out as the Keystones cops agency.
The author and his narrator was great. I am so looking forward to more of the collaboration.
Tantalizing, Educational, Fast Paced
Harry's excellent tenaciousness.
When Harry Markopolos figured out the BM was a scum bag
I would suggest this book to a friend, I found the subject matter enjoyable and educating.
The chemistry education.
The narrator was disappointing.
no, this sounds exactly like Lincoln lawyer. I would suggest reading/listening to Lincoln Lawyer.
the story line reminded me to the automobile of Lincoln Lawyer.
This book was so close to Lincoln Lawyer, it feels like someone plagiarized someone?
the makeup of a sociopath
chapter 8 would be my opening. Do you know this person?
I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. I may listen to other books on this subject.
