Corporate greed, insider trading, fraud, inflated egos, political intrigue, Milken, Boesky, Giuliani. Ah, the '80s! What will early 21st-century business leaders do to top the escapades of their forebears? Let's hope we don't find out. This exhaustively researched story is at once appalling and fascinating, and narrator Johnny Heller keeps the story moving. His voice is the embodiment of 1980s style: brash, freewheeling, uneven, and compelling. But he reads too fast at times, and it's obvious on the tapes where he had to go back and rerecord. He also makes notable pronunciation mistakes. Despite all that, his pacing is brisk and entertaining. R.I.G.
