Last Tycoons by William D. Cohan

Book Description

William D. Cohan's "The Last Tycoons: The Secret History of Lazard Freres & Co." is the astonishing story of the world's most elite and legendary investment bank - and the men who reigned over it all. For over 150 years Lazard Freres had stood apart from other Wall Street firms by offering ultra-wealthy clients the wisdom of its 'Great Men': from Felix Rohatyn, the escapee from Nazi-occupied France turned financial genius, to Michel David-Weill, the inscrutable French billionaire 'Sun King'; from Steve Rattner, the boy wonder from Long Island who clashed violently with the old guard, to larger-than-life CEO Bruce Wasserstein, 'Bid-Em-Up-Bruce', who broke with the bank's traditions and made himself billions in the process. They amassed unimaginable fortunes and would stop at nothing to make a deal, until their titanic egos started to jeopardize everything. In "The Last Tycoons" William Cohan, himself a former high-level Wall Street banker, takes us into their mysterious and secretive world, telling a story of ruthless ambition, whispered advice, explosive feuds, glamorous mistresses, decadent excesses and unimaginable wealth. "Spellbinding". ("Financial Times"). "A definitive account ...it lives up to the billing". ("The Times"). "Has sent a jolt through Lazard and the rest of Wall Street". ("Wall Street Journal"). William D. Cohan was an award-winning investigative journalist before embarking on a seventeen-year career as an investment banker on Wall Street. His first book, "The Last Tycoons", about Lazard, won the 2007 Financial Times/Goldman Sachs Business Book of the Year Award and was a "New York Times" bestseller. His second book, "House of Cards", also a bestseller, is an account of the last days of Bear Stearns & Co. He is also the author of "Money and Power: How Goldman Sachs Came to Rule the World".

Books By Author William D. Cohan

Money and Power by William D. Cohan Money and Power, Paperback (April 2012)

Goldman Sachs are the investment bank all other banks - and most businesses - want to emulate; the firm with the best talent, the best strategy. But is their success just down to the gilded magic of the 'Goldman way'? This book is a story of clashing egos, backstabbing, sex scandals, private investigators, court cases and government cabals.

New Financial Deal by William D. Cohan New Financial Deal, Hardback (January 2011)

What can we expect from our era's New Deal? To answer this question, The New Financial Deal will begin with an inside account of the legislative process, then outline and access its key components: the new framework for regulating derivatives, the regulation of banking and systemic risk, and the new resolution regime.

House of Cards by William D. Cohan House of Cards, Paperback (February 2010)

It was Wall Street's toughest investment bank, taking risks where others feared to tread, run by testosterone-fuelled gamblers who hung a sign saying 'let's make nothing but money' over the trading floor. This book tells the outrageous story of how Wall Street's entire house of cards came crashing down.
