Barbarians at the Gate: The Fall of RJR Nabisco By Bryan Burrough, John Helyar
Barbarians at the Gate is probably the latest and latest in my streak of finance related literature. This was a very long and sometimes boring book. Overall I felt it is a worthwhile piece of literature that offers a glimpse into the lives of corporate CEOs, bankers, lawyers and PE firms. The book is set in the late 80s, which offers some hindsight into who made it out alive and who collapsed.
