9780394570235: Rainmaker: The Saga of Jeff Beck, Wall Street's Mad Dog

This is the story of a man who destroyed three marriages and made many enemies in his manic pursuit of wealth and status. Beck's creation of a hero's personality earned him a cameo role in the film "Wall Street", but his inability to distinguish fantasy from reality led to exposure and breakdown.

Book Description Random House, 1991. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Even by the standards of Wall Street in the 1980s, Jeff Beck's amazing life story was too good to be true. One of the Street's most prominent investment bankers, Beck was involved in many of the biggest deals of the decade and made a fortune in the process. He was the "Mad Dog," a veteran of hand-to-hand combat in the jungles of Vietnam and a secret billionaire. The only problem was, none of this was true. Bianco follows Beck's career from its beginnings and weaves together the contradictory strands of his personality. His story is a metaphor for an era that prized shadow over substance, expediency over heroism, money over love. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0394570235
