5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 04-15-16

Very good case study on how a firm grow from a two people shop to the number one private equity -LBO company in the world. Even though the title is the King of Capital, it actually tells us how to become the king though constantly adjust your firm's strategy,hiring new blood, handling regulations, seize the business oppertunities based on economic cycle and globle growth,
etc. Recommends this book to small and big business owers.
