I read this effort at the suggestion of Chip Brackley, on my iPad, using iBook.

Last Man Standing by Duff McDonald is not at all bad, really. The book, from cover-to-cover is reasonably well written, and highly useful.

Highlights: If you want to understand the banking business beyond what the media offers, and the people that make it work, this is the book to read. And it’s not a vanity piece for a banker on top of his game. This book has specific relevance to anyone who pays taxes in this country or has a bank account.

McDonald apparently had unprecedented access to Dimon and he just have nailed it if you want to understand Mr. Dimon.

Careful reading, combined with reference to Dimon’s “Management Letters” – which he’s renowned for, make this a valuable endeavor.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
