A number one best seller from coast to coast, Den of Thieves tells, in masterfully reported detail, the full story of the insider-trading scandal that nearly destroyed Wall Street, the men who pulled it off, and the chase that finally brought them to justice.
Pulitzer Prize winner James B. Stewart shows for the first time how four of the biggest names on Wall Street - Michael Milken, Ivan Boesky, Martin Siegel, and Dennis Levine - created the greatest insider-trading ring in financial history and almost walked away with billions - until a team of downtrodden detectives triumphed over some of America's most expensive lawyers to bring this powerful quartet to justice.
Based on secret grand jury transcripts, interviews, and actual trading records, and containing explosive new revelations about Michael Milken and Ivan Boesky written especially for this new edition, Den of Thieves weaves all the facts into an unforgettable narrative - a portrait of human nature, big business, and crime of unparalleled proportions.

If you like to understand Wall St then this book gives you a great insider look into insider trading. A little long winded but still worth hanging in there.
"World of Wall Street"
A superb tale giving chilling insights into the world of Wall Street. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn about insider trading, junk bonds and LBO's in the 80's
"Just a very dry read"
a dry read that's hard to pay attention too. there's better books out there if you like stuff like this I suggest Enron.
"Felt like a documentary"
Give him better material to work with. He may have a chance of impressing me then.
I listened to about 5 or 6 chapters of the audiobook. I felt like someone was reading an encyclopedia or news article to me. It didn't really draw me into the scene or characters at all. Very detached.
Mildly entertaining but not that well written and full of conjecture. I wouldn't recommend unless you are bored and want to read a gossip book about finance.
