It is about what drives them to succeed and then to fail.
It is a compelling examination of the rights and wrongs of each case and it seeks to get into the minds of the people behind the business disasters and ask 'Why the hell did they do that?'.
By examining how business ventures can go so badly wrong, you can learn to avoid those mistakes in the first place.

Review by bbbart
I was not very impressed by this book. It's little more than a dry listing of public events surrounding once super rich CEOs and entrepreneurs who ultimately failed and there's a constant focus on money as a measurement on having achieved success.<br/><br/>The one lesson to be learned from this book is: do not upset Vladimir Putin.
