Barbarians At The Gate

Excellent read with some brilliant one-liners. My personal favourite - "A blinding glimpse of the obvious".

As engaging as any business thriller could get. What makes it even better is - while reading the book, one ends up thinking 'This isn't fiction. This shit actually happened!'

The book is an account of the events that led to the fall of RJR Nabisco.

"A blinding glimpse of the obvious" !!! ooooooooh !! Now is'nt that a mother of sarcasm. Nice.

Since I'm not much of a reader, will try to get hold of the movie :) for sure as i did hear about the cool one liners from some friends too.
Thanks for the post.

Do try to read the book. The films rarely do justice.
