There are two types of biographies that generally work A Autobiographies where you re chasing the author s voice and perspective Or B where the author s position is so remarkably aligned to the subject s style, that the subject is brought to life in vivid colour Last Man Standing wins at the latter, many times over This is above and beyond all there is to take away from Dimon and his way of life Solid gold. Although the story of Jamie Dimon is truly enchanting and interesting to read, I was not satisfied the way the author puts it There are gaps in the narration, and I often found myself puzzled with some parts and how they are related to the story Most of the stuff written in the book seems as if you re reading a news report rather than actual narration of Jamie Dimon s life and his achievements.The style of writing is flawed but I thoroughly enjoyed the aspects of Jamie s hard work, intelligence ,style of leadership and emphasis on building stable businesses I would not recommend this book if you do not have much familiarity with technical aspects of the financial sector. Read it first in 2010.Fantastic book so much to learn about culture, and personalities and how the core of a financial services business is often the culture and the process.A great bio on Dimon.The bits on how the 06 09 period was navigated were brilliant and so was the empire building spree when he was with Sandy during Citigroup s formation.Another interesting note is the low ROEs that the business has managed inspite of being so strong and revered. Decent read The book has a myriad of insights and details about Jamie Dimon portraying him as on the most skilled leaders and bankers ever Parts of the book, namely around the time when the 2008 crisis occurred, are financially technical and some of the details ended up going over my head Otherwise, I enjoyed the read and learned a great deal about the kind of character Jamie Dimon is. One of the best books I ve ever read This writer has verve, style, and erudition. Fascinating and flattering profile of financial powerDuff McDonald s book covers a fascinating historical moment the 2008 2009 Wall Street debacle by profiling a pivotal character in the thick of it, Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase Having spent extensive time with Dimon, McDonald combines his reporting with published sources, Dimon s own writings and statements, and interviews with his associates, employees or relatives McDonald covers Dimon s youth, business school education and evolving career Dimon was a nonconformist in business school and politics, an astute lieutenant of his mentor Sandy Weill, and a pivotal figure in the financial crisis Notably, he preserved JPMorgan Chase, bought Bear Stearns and helped lead the market back to stability Readers interested in a critical take on Dimon may find the book too flattering, but if you want to see how the financial wars looked from the CEO s chair, getAbstract recommends this intriguing perspective.
