9780307452993: King of Capital: The Remarkable Rise, Fall, and Rise Again of Steve Schwarzman and Blackstone

The untold story of Steve Schwarzman and Blackstone, the financier and his financial powerhouse who avoided the self-destructive tendencies of Wall Street; how Blackstone (and other private equity firms) transformed from being gamblers, hostile takeover artists, and "barbarians at the gate" into disciplined, risk-conscious investors. The financial establishment banks and investment bankers such as Citigroup, Bear Stearns, Lehman, UBS, Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley were the cowboys, recklessly assuming risks, leveraging up to astronomical levels and driving the economy to the brink of disaster. Blackstone is now ready to break out once again since it is sitting on billions of dollars that can be invested at a time when the market is starved for capital. This book is rough cut, which means the pages are unevenly cut to give the book a distinctive look and feel.

Review:

King of Capital aspires to be a serious portrait of Blackstone and the way that Schwarzman so brilliantly built it up, scoring numerous coups along the way and avoiding the mistakes of many competitors. And it does a fine job in what it sets out to do. --The Financial Times, 20/10/2010

New book offers fresh portrait of buyout powerhouse...The authors were given rare access to Blackstone s inner circle and have produced an intimate portrait of the secretive firm. --Financial News, 18/10/2010
