"If you're a deal junkie--and especially if you're a DealBook junkie--you will devour Bloodsport...The book is peppered with stories about the likes of Michael Milken, Bruce Wasserstein, Felix Rohatyn and Martin Lipton--a cast of characters who defined an age that irrevocably shaped corporate America today. But more than any book I've read, Mr. Teitelman's has managed to capture how power shifted from a company's boardroom to its shareholders, a change that is often seen as positive but clearly comes with its own pitfalls." --Andrew Ross Sorkin, New York Times "Well written, and a must read for any aspiring dealmaker or business journalist. It is infused with history, anecdotes and insight about M&A trickery that will give readers the necessary edge for future deals...Teitelman goes out of his way to make M&A as accessible as possible, which is commendable." --James Fontanella-Khan, Financial Times "An absorbing history of the takeover boom... There's plenty to chew on in this deep dive into the dark arts of M&A." --Barron's "A sobering exploration of the mergers and acquisition business...tracing how speculators and executives get rich while others--mostly workers--face layoffs, dislocation and damaged careers...Excellent." --Washington Post "Teitelman, covering decades, assembles a comprehensive history akin to a complex, deftly spun spider's web of insightfully interconnected strands. Page by page, the author connects the many dots in his extraordinarily information-packed and also opinionated survey that easily grips any reader with an interest in the book's topic...In short, there is fact-driven brilliance in Bloodsport's pages." --Ted Sturtz, New York Journal of Books "A great story, with profound implications for the way America views and regulates corporations...Teitelman has a masterly command of his subject...in this comprehensive look at corporate takeovers." --Publishers Weekly "Lively storytelling about complex theories and arcane dealmaking." --Kirkus Reviews "Bob Teitleman has written THE definitive book on the rise of the 2.5 trillion deal market. He expertly weaves insider history with a deep theoretical and insightful look into how the United States became a deal nation. This book should be required reading not just for deal junkies but for anyone who wishes to understand our economy and the world of mergers, acquisitions and dealmakers." --Steven Davidoff Solomon, Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law and the New York Times 'Deal Professor'
