From the Inside Flap:

The world of finance has been home to a variety of fascinating heroes and villains-from the movers and shakers looking for the ultimate payday to the founding fathers of great financial institutions-who have left their mark, for better or worse, in pursuit of grand economic ideals.

The achievements of legends such as Jesse L. Livermore, John D. Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, and Joseph P. Kennedy are well known, but there is more to these and other financial legends than meets the eye. In Volume Two of Wall Street People, Charles Ellis and James Vertin turn back the clock to reveal the true stories of the great barons of finance. Vivid portraits offer a rare glimpse into the professional and personal world of over sixty of the masters and moguls of finance. This unique book profiles some of the most interesting, powerful, and talked-about financial luminaries of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. You'll get an up-close and personal look at such well-known personalities as:

J. Pierpont Morgan Jr.-son of the legendary banking figure, he successfully headed the family's firm, enjoyed his business role immensely, and lived in a mansion grander than any of his father's

Jesse L. Livermore-whose combination of iron will, patience, and timing made him the greatest speculator ever

Jay Gould-hard dealing, yet admirable, he started to build a railroad fortune at age twenty-three and completed it at age fifty-six, attempting some of the most famous gold corners along the way

Andrew Carnegie-whose philosophy of "making yourself the master in one line of business" helped him conquer the iron and steel industry

John D. Rockefeller-the shrewd dealer who rationalized the U.S. petroleum industry, built Standard Oil into one of the world's greatest business organizations, and amassed an enormous fortune

Joseph P. Kennedy-whose skills and persistence enabled him to establish a family fortune and political dynasty

Captivating, revealing, and intriguing, Wall Street People: True Stories of the Great Barons of Finance, Volume Two is a unique collection of profiles that will be cherished by anyone who enjoys reading about the lives of history's financial luminaries and scoundrels. The financial world has produced some extraordinarily interesting people. Find out who they are, what they did, and how they got there in Wall Street People, Volume Two.

From the Back Cover:

Praise For Wall Street People
VOLUMES 1 and 2

"The people in this book have one thing in common. For better or worse, each made a lasting impression on the landscape of our business. While some are viewed as heroes, and others as rascals or villains, there is something to be learned from each of their stories. Wall Street People is a fascinating portrayal of individuals who achieved fame or infamy in one of the most competitive arenas in the world."
-Alan C. Greenberg, Chairman
Bear, Stearns & Co., Inc.

"There has been no keener observer of Wall Street than Charley Ellis. If this book had a 'Most Influential' category, Charley should include himself."
-Richard H. Jenrette, Senior Advisor
Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette

"Charley Ellis has correctly concluded that the financial world has produced some extraordinarily interesting people. Wall Street People is certain to provide fascinating reading."
-Richard B. Fisher, Chairman Emeritus and Advisory Director
Morgan Stanley

"Charley Ellis's Wall Street People is delicious reading for anyone who's been involved with Wall Street over the past half century. This book depicts saints, sinners, dreamers, and achievers with real panache. It's a treasure trove of great stories."
-David H. Komansky, Chairman and CEO
Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc.

"For anyone who enjoys reading about the lives of successful, productive people, Charley's book is filled with fascinating insights into the achievements of Wall Street's best."
-Senator Jon S. Corzine
former Chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs
