Tearing Down the Walls

I just finished reading the book, Tearing Down The Walls written by Monica Langley. It is the fascinating story of Sandy Weill. Sandy Weill is the single biggest player in Wall Street history. Sandy Weill's life has had its ups and downs and to see how he came from virtually no where to the most recognizable name in the financial services industry is amazing.

The book has been on the streets for about three years. Monica Langley also has Knoxville, TN roots. In her acknowledgements she credits the visits with her mother to the Knoxville, TN public libraries.

If you are at all interested in the workings of Wall Street or the financial services industry. I would recommend this book. Sandy Weill is colorful and a great read. Monica Langley did a great job detailing his life.
