5.0 von 5 Sternen Probably the best Wall Street book! 11. Dezember 2002
Von T. Kunz
Format:Taschenbuch
Probably the best Wall Street book I have ever read. Even at University in Switzerland we have looked into the legendary takeover battle and largest leverage buyout of RJR Nabisco by KKR in 1998. The two authors, Bryan Burrough (a reporter for the Wall Street Journal in New York) and John Helvar (Senior Correspondent for the Wall Street Journal), draw the amazing story of "The Fall of RJR Nabisco" in great detail. The Book kicks off with the boardroom meeting where management presented the idea of the buyout only to go back in history of key management and company histories as well as corporate America in the 80s.
The authors describe characters like Ross Johnson ("never tell the truth, never pay in cash and never play by the rules") of RJR and Henry Kravitz of KKR as well as deal tactics and financing instruments of buyout houses and investment banks with great detail make the booking an excellent read.
If you are interested in this topic, I suggest you also read "Den of Thieves" and "Taken for a Ride", both of which cover the Investment Banking world of M&A deal tactics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen For sure the best Wall Street book 30. September 2004

Barbarians at the Gate is the best Wall Street book I have ever read. Even at University in Switzerland we have looked into the legendary takeover battle and largest leverage buyout of RJR Nabisco by KKR in the year 1998.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent Read..... Even 10 Years Later 28. Mai 2000
Von Brian P.
Format:Taschenbuch
Finally got around to reading this book and I must say that it is FASCINATING!
What was most interesting to me was the lack of intelligence and abilities of those running RJR Nabisco and all their high-paid Wall Street help. If these are the kind of people who "run" our economy, we're in BIG trouble.
An excellent story... even 10 years later.

A good read for a complete novice on the world of Wall Street and corporate America. We benefit from the indepth research of the authors, clearly close to their subject, and, from their good journalism, as they know how to tell a story without losing the layman. My subtitle for the book would be 'all I ever needed to know about LBOs' -- the RJR Nabisco buyout is an excellent case study. There's little too much extraneous detail on the characters -- it's distracting -- but perhaps that's an effort to give them some depth. Indeed, it's a pity that many of the main protagonists are so reprehensible -- I found it hard to empathise with any of the characters. And the story does leave the reader with a sense of disillusion on two points: the sheer waste of money and resources squandered for the sake of egos; and clearly, contacts (especially amongst the 'jocks') are as, if not more, important than diligence, competance or intelligence

5.0 von 5 Sternen Barbarians Brings Wall St. To Life 11. Februar 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Why read fiction when all that you have to do is open the Wall St. Journal? Barbarians at the Gate gives the reader insight into the behind the scenes details that go into a major corporate transaction. Laymen, don't be swayed!!! This work of non-fiction reads like a Grisham or Turow novel. Deals are cut, backs are stabbed, and a lot a money changes hands. Just another day at the office for players in this arena.
Having become a mergers & acquisitions advisor subsequent to reading this book, I have come to realize how true to life it actually is. Heylar and Burroughs do an excellent job of explaining the complexities of a buyout without inundating the reader with boring (trust me...boring) details. This book is a must read for people interested in a good story, as well as people interested in life on the Street.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Descriptive 29. März 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Barbarians provides a detailed look into the biggest LBO in history - RJR Nabisco. The author does any amazing job of describing the events, people, industry and money involved in this transaction. The author paints a perception of what drives men in the LBO industry - ethically and economically. He doesn't try to sway your opinion one way or the other. The chain of events, themselves, makes this book worth reading - no player in this transaction is left untouched. I recommend anyone interested in LBOs to pick and read this book. Tremondous insight into the LBO/power player industry

Excellent inside look into corporate America and Wall Street takeovers frenzy in the 80s. Book is written in a very readable manner that does not require any deep knowledge of economics or financial theories. Reader is led to astonishing discovery of how the power of networking and personal egos control the world of business and finances. It reveals the tremendous power and opportunities that the CEO of the big corporation is given, and leads to understanding of who the real "players" are.
