The "release date" of 04-25-17 had me erroneously believing this book had been updated. Nope. Kind of a lot has happened since 1997, including some of the most interesting things in the banking world, and many events that dramatically change the way much of the topics discussed in the book should be viewed. Several conclusions in the book are proven wrong by more recent events. So much has changed since 1997 that this book is pretty much irrelevant. There are a few good chapters on events that happened before the 1980s (like the discussion on J.P.Morgan).

Not as dense as the normal Ron Chernow works I'm accustomed to but displays more of the historian's humor; short and sweet remembrance of the evolution of the world of high finance and it's key players
