10 Days in March: The New Book About How and Why Bear Stearn

by Derek Loosvelt | March 06, 2009

Next week the beautifully-titled new book by best-seller William Cohan, House of Cards: A Tale of Hubris and Wretched Excess on Wall Street, will be coming to a book shelf and web site near you, and if the exclusive excerpt, reviews and Cohan's last book (an award winner about the inner workings and infamous history of the French-bred Brothers Lazard) are any indication, then his 480-page investigation into how and why the former maverick investment bank known as Bear Stearns & Co. (helmed by the bridge-playing golf-loving reportedly midnight-toking Jimmy Cayne) went down in March of 2008 will certainly be some hubris and excess to savor.

If you're salivating at the thought of diving into the Bear dirt and can't wait till Tuesday, as an appetizer you can check out what Cohan believes are the far-reaching implications of his book here
