Interesting AIG story from an earlier insider

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

AIG's story breaks into the amazing decades of building and growth, and the half decade of destruction and government rescue. If you read enough about the latter part, this book may introduce you in more detail to the time before the Greenberg was ousted.

What did you like best about this story?

The author has quite a few anecdotes and inside information from the early days. Even if he mentions several times that General MacArthur's cook worked for Mr Starr later...

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, most of the books I am listening during my commute in the morning and evenings. This one was easy to put down after 30 mins and easy to pick up again after a good night's sleep...
