I loved it, but probably mainly because I work there and love to learn about all the dirty laundry It was good to have the whole story in one place I think it gives a fair assessment of Grasso though Hey Sue I m only doing this for you The book is like a very long Wall Street Journal article but the definitive work on how Dick Grasso earned a 200 million retirement package from New York Stock Exchange Just my kind of book I only give 5 stars to Vince Flynn. Well written to the point that it kept all the financial details from being too boring, this is an interesting read to a certain extent, that being I had no idea who Richard Grasso was, so I didn t really care, but found myself somewhat intrigued and caring about what happened. Chris recommended this read and I like Charlie s reporting work on CNBC, so I think it ll be a good read. `Free Book ↹ King of the Club: Richard Grasso and the Survival of the New York Stock Exchange ↚ A Long Way to the TopRags to riches stories abound in American lore, but even Horatio Alger would have been hard pressed to write one as powerful as Richard Grasso s the son of a working class family whose childhood dream was to become a cop, he grew up in New York City s outer boroughs, as far removed from the marble halls, expensive suits, and imported cigars of the New York Stock Exchange as if his grandparents had remained in ItalyHere is the riveting story of how the Little Man in the Dark Suit rose to become the most influential CEO in the Exchange s history Minus the tony upbringing, affluent prep schools, or inside connections that were de rigueur for top Wall Street players, Grasso would master the subtle deal making and politics necessary to succeed in the most competitive business on EarthThe Day the Market FellThe story of September ,the shock, panic, resilience, and heroism is one that s been told many times But on that day, Richard Grasso faced a challenge no other CEO of the Club had ever imagined how to bring the very heart of global finance back from near death to functioning operation Swiftly, completely, and without the public knowing how desperate the struggle really was He met it with aplomb his finest hour, and yet one that sowed the seeds of his own destructionA Plutocrat s PayAs the Exchange leapt from success to success, and Grasso s reputation, already gold plated following, grew with it, the Club s Board of Directors lavishly rewarded him with a pay package that even the CEOs at the world s largest corporations might envy thanmillion in deferred compensation It was a package that, when leaked, brought down a hailstorm of protest bitter divisions among the most powerful names on Wall Street an investigation from the Scourge of Wall Street, then Attorney General Eliot Spitzer and Grasso s eventual humiliating downfallThe End of an EraAlmost single handedly, Grasso had kept the famous specialist system, where human traders matched buy and sell orders, front and center at the Club As competing camps plotted his downfall, the exchange s fate became clear without Grasso, it might survive and indeed flourish, but the Exchange, the firms that supplied it with business, and the structures underpinning the movement of money around the country and the globe would never be the same Dračí carevna (Bohatýr but even Horatio Alger would have been hard pressed to write one as powerful as Richard Grasso s the son of a working class family whose childhood dream was to become a cop Spitfire he grew up in New York City s outer boroughs Scientia sacra I-III. as far removed from the marble halls Vox expensive suits Wyatts Stand (Colebrook Siblings Trilogy and imported cigars of the New York Stock Exchange as if his grandparents had remained in ItalyHere is the riveting story of how the Little Man in the Dark Suit rose to become the most influential CEO in the Exchange s history Minus the tony upbringing Whose Bed Is It Anyway? affluent prep schools State Secrets or inside connections that were de rigueur for top Wall Street players Que Vivan Los Tamales!
