Phil Graham famously described journalism as 'the first rough draft of history,' but in an era of financial scandal and collapse, the business press has had to be something more: a guardian when government and other watchdogs fell by the wayside. This riveting collection of first rate pieces covers the waterfront from Apple to Pfizer, from debt default in Europe to bugging at News Corp. and, of course, the ongoing saga of foreclosures, bankers and regulators in America, updated with an inquiry into inequality and the '1%.' This volume of digestible-sized, stiletto-sharp stories will surprise the reader at how much he or she may have missed and reminds us all how momentous was the business world of 2011. -- Roger Lowenstein, author of The End of Wall Street A riveting cross-section of hard-hitting investigative journalism... The breadth, depth, and quality of writing are sure to engage a diversity of readers. Publishers Weekly ...this book presents revealing, and sometimes shocking, investigations. Library Journal Whether readers are familiar with some of the news stories or not, this collection exposesbehaviors-both good and bad-along with their impacts, and leaves readers with much to think about. Booklist absolute must-read for anyone seeking to keep their finger on the pulse of the world economy. Midwest Book Review
