Description

William D. Cohan’s Money and Power: How Goldman Sachs Came to Rule the World is a chronicle of the most successful, iconic bank on Wall Street, from the firm’s founding in 1869 to the present day.

Goldman Sachs are the investment bank all other banks – and most businesses – want to emulate; the firm with the best talent, the best clients, the best strategy. But is their success just down to the gilded magic of the ‘Goldman way’?

William D. Cohan has gained unprecedented access to Goldman’s inner circle – both on and off the record. In an astonishing story of clashing egos, backstabbing, sex scandals, private investigators, court cases and government cabals, he reveals what really lies beneath their gold-plated image.

Guardian

‘A definitive account of the most profitable and influential investment bank of the modern era’
