Mr. Fuld is just one of the characters populating "The Sellout," Mr. Gasparino's splendid account of the financial meltdown. Lehman's fate, not to mention Mr. Fuld's rhetorical excess, is emblematic of the confusion, miscalculation and distress of the whole episode.

Synopsis

In the spirit of Barbarians at the Gate and Liar’s Poker comes The Sellout, the definitive book on the recent collapse of Wall Street, one of the most dramatic and anxiety-ridden era in national socioeconomic history. In this powerful business narrative, Charles Gasparino, the author of Blood on the Floor and King of the Club, captures how avarice, arrogance, and sheer stupidity eroded Wall Street’s dominance, made many of our country’s most fabled financial institutions vulnerable to significant new foreign control, and profoundly weakened the financial security of millions of poor and middle-class American families.
