I remember watching Louis Rukeyser on Wall Street Week with Louis Rukeyser on Public Television. Sandy Weil and Jamie Dimon were frequent guests on the show both as interviews and on discussion panels.
Crisafulli covers Dimon’s work history but provides very little information about his early life or education. The author provides a brief summary of his personal life near the end of the book. It appears that Dimon is one of the few business men that not only has the ability to do strategic planning but also tactical planning and implementation. In other words, he is able to see the big picture but also able to implement the actions and do the daily operation of a business. I found the detailed discussion of his restructure of Bank One most interesting.
The book is well written and the research was meticulous. My only complaint is there was a bit too much repetition. I found the book most interesting and the information about Dimon during the 2008 recession most informative. Patricia Crisafulli is a journalist and the book is written in the manner typical of an investigative journalist.
Suzanne Toren does an excellent job narrating the book and is a multi-award winning audiobook narrator.

Repeats the same PR type of info that come from press pieces over and over
I am sure that Jamie Dimon is a interesting man with an interesting life but this did not expose the man, his life or form a complete picture of how he got to be one of the most powerful bankers in the country.
I bought this audiobook as I had already found Jamie Dimon interesting from my own study and idolise him somewhat. However, after listening I can truly say I have gained a great deal of insight into him as well as many areas of finance and family life. excellent read.
