Street Fighters: The Last 72 Hours of Bear Stearns, the Toughest Firm on Wall Street (Paperback)

Not in the store—Ships in 1-5 Days


The acclaimed "New York Times" bestseller-updated for the second anniversary of the collapse of Bear Stearns
The fall of Bear Stearns in March 2008 set off a wave of global financial turmoil that continues to ripple. How could one of the oldest, most resilient firms on Wall Street go so far astray that it had to be sold at a fire sale price? How could the street fighters who ran Bear so aggressively miscalculate so completely?
Expanding with fresh detail from her acclaimed front-page series in "The Wall Street Journal," Kate Kelly captures every sight, sound, and smell of Bear's three final days. She also shows how Bear's top executives descended into civil war as the mortgage crisis began to brew.
