Fifteen years. Ten contestants. Two bull markets. Two bear markets. Five million dollars. Jason Kelly's gripping account of the Colvin Real Estate Group's singular money race strips away the empty promises of investment advisors and shows what it really takes to win at stocks. Top business students specializing in different strategies and different sectors raced each other through an extraordinary set of events including the dot-com bubble and bust, the housing bubble and bust, the collapse of Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, and the government interventions that ignited a roaring recovery on Wall Street. All ten delivered first-rate performances, but only one claimed the prize.
