Malcolm Gladwell has a “must read” piece in the New Yorker. He reviews Steve Rattner’s “Overhual” but doesn’t stop there. He also assesses the auto bailouts and offers great commentary on the world of private equity.
Gladwell’s skewers Rattner’s superficial assessment of Rick Wagoner. His points about a similarly superficial (but opposite) assessment of Rick’s replacement, Ed Whitacre are spot on.
Highly recommended. (You can find the article here.)
