Aside from the incredibly engaging story, I found this book to be an educational masterpiece in the context of a lay-person’s intro to the bond, lending, and equity market on Wall Street. A must read for anyone who wants to understand what happened in 2007/2008 during the financial crisis.

Short and sweet. The book presents some critical concepts in running an organization, thinking about brand, building teams and evolving in role as the founder. While I do recommend the book, I prefer entrepreneur stories who are written by an author / researcher rather than the entrepreneur themselves. This is mostly because of the sense of bias the autobiographical version of these stories take rather than presenting a deep dive on both success and failure that was overcome. Good book overall.
