Kurzbeschreibung

A #1 bestseller from coast to coast, Den of Thieves tells the full story of the insider-trading scandal that nearly destroyed Wall Street, the men who pulled it off, and the chase that finally brought them to justice.

Pulitzer Prize–winner James B. Stewart shows for the first time how four of the eighties’ biggest names on Wall Street—Michael Milken, Ivan Boesky, Martin Siegel, and Dennis Levine —created the greatest insider-trading ring in financial history and almost walked away with billions, until a team of downtrodden detectives triumphed over some of America’s most expensive lawyers to bring this powerful quartet to justice.

Based on secret grand jury transcripts, interviews, and actual trading records, and containing explosive new revelations about Michael Milken and Ivan Boesky written especially for this paperback edition, Den of Thieves weaves all the facts into an unforgettable narrative—a portrait of human nature, big business, and crime of unparalleled proportions.

First read this book in college. Reread it recently have having spent the last five years in the finance industry, several in high-yield investment banking. As a narrative, the book is a nice read, especially the first half. But to say that it's not an objective piece of work would be hyperbole. Stewart does well capturing the flavor and the sensationalism of the times but his assessment of Milken or Drexel or the high yield market, is not a sober or accuate one. And his numbers didn't always add up. (Take a calculator to those pages explaining bond commissions.) In the end, Stewart comes off as just another conspiracy theorist, before the conspiracy theories were in vogue. Still, kind of a fun read.

This book was really well writen and covers the breadth of what goes on in the investment banking world. I like the introductions on how the major investment houses started, and the roles of the Investment bankers, traders, lawyers, arbitragers etc. The central figure is Michael milken, who the book suggests is greedy and foul. The book is obviously on the side of US law enforcement, who some argue were biased and sought to destroy Milken for other motives. On the whole, I think it is a great book and it really helps one understand the whole finance game, and what happens (or used to happen) in wall street. Being from an Engineering and computing background, but with interest in M&A myself, I feel this book was really cool. I however reserve my judgements on Michael Milken till I read another book that is pro Milken. Taking away the crime aspects, I think Michael Milken is a genius.

This classic account of insider trading during the greed decade remains as riveting today as the day it was published. Prize-winning journalist James B. Stewart manages to turn an account of the arcane market manipulation that led to the 1987 crash into a page-turner with all the suspense of a detective novel. And while the main villains here - Michael Milken and Ivan Boesky - have faded off the public radar, their philosophical descendants at Enron, Tyco and Adelphia remind investors that greed and market manipulation will never go out of style. Stewart's richly detailed book is must reading for those who trust their careers or their savings to the markets. We recommend this withering account of over-the-top greed to anyone who works or invests on Wall Street.

If you like mysteries, cover-ups, intricate plots, good and bad guys and soap opera, this book is for you. What makes it so frightening is that it is real. The question I kept asking myself is how do we know that this won't happen again, or isn't going on right now. And yet, we know that in the investment and banking worlds given the situations in Asia and Latin America, there are more shoes to drop. I believe that this industry has been infiltrated by more bad habits - power, greed and hunger - than most. The culture has encouraged it. A new book I read describes these problems well and then offers a way out. THE 2,000 PERCENT SOLUTION talks about 'stalls' that keep us from changing. In investment banking, The Communications Stall means that some people get messages before others, creating an unfair advantage. The Disbelief Stall makes them think that they aren't doing anything wrong and won't get caught. The Tradition Stall says that business has always been done that way, so it's okay. The Bureaucratic Stall would make them think that if there is enough red tape, no one will figure out what is going on. The Misconception Stall says that they were operating under poor assumptions, because they did get caught. The Unattractiveness Stall means that if something looks unpleasant, just cover it up. What is needed is a new way to do business and a new system of checks and balances, a 2,000 percent solution.

James Stewart's expose on the Wall Streets scandals of the go-go 80's reads like the Oliver Stone film come to life. The stories of such high flying white collar crooks as Ivan Boesky and Michael Milken and how they met their downfall is nothing short of fascinating. These were guys whose genius made them wealthy beyond most people's wildest imaginations, but for whom enough was never enough. Stewart is a first rate journalist and having worked for the Wall Street Journal, he came to be intimately familiar with the particular villians and the heroic agents and prosecutors who caught them. Anyone with an interest in criminology or a few bucks invested in a high risk stock ought to read this.

This text, like the story it tells, is protracted but highly readable. Mr. Stewart writes in an engaging, enjoyable style. He enables his readers to grasp the real drama of the events that shook Wall Street during the 1980's. We see the primary firgures in the junk bond and M&A empires who traded information and manipulated the market for amazing personal gain. We gain insight into what motivated them, what destroyed them, and how they dealt with the pressures and rewards of insider trading. The most frightening aspect of the text is the obvious implication that future financial leaders may exploit their positions as readily as the four men detailed here
