Key insights into an influential figure
I’ve studied Stephen Schwarzman at a distance but this book provided even deeper insights on the creation and operation of Blackstone as they were from his perspective. I learned and was inspired by his boldness and intelligence. His involvement in international trade negotiations was very interesting to hear as well. I recommend this for anyone interested in finance and economics.
