King Icahn is an excellently written and read book about one of the best capitalists of all time. The author's voice fits perfectly considering the book is about a New York street fighter come corporate raider.
This book is a must for anyone interested in capitalists and all things capital related. Mr. Stevens is not sycophantic and seems unbiased. The book goes into significant detail regarding some of the bigger deals in Carl's life up to the publishing date. The events are set up nicely and are presented in the form of chapters that make it easy to follow.
This review was written after my second time listening the audiobook. It isn't numbers heavy so you won't need to reference the physical book. If invest in companies you really should read or listen to this book.
I like King Icahn because it tells the story and lets the reader draw their own conclusions.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Get a different narrator. Some writers should never read their books and this is a fine example. I should have listened to the sample before buying it. This narrator is so terrible that I cannot listen to this book anymore. I have to stop halfway.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Story is fine but narrator is terrible.
How could the performance have been better?
Pick a different narrator. I could have done a better job.
Could you see King Icahn being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
I would love to see the movie.
Any additional comments?
Once again, good book but terrible narrator. I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks and this is by far the worse narration. Period.

Why do authors feel they have the skill to read their books? Great story, poor narration
to be honest i have mix feelings im not going to say it was not impressive what the guy did because it was but sometimes the author makes you wonder if it was the plan of icahn or if he just saw an opportunity and pursue it again there are both totaly good but o did not like the romanticism behind it and a was expecting more in the pas that made the man what he was kind of like in the Rockefeller biography I understant there are some limitations because the guy still alive and doing things overall i like it but it did left me waiting for a bit more
