Schmeelk. As a general partner of Salomon Brothers Inc., a member of the firms executive committee, and head of its worldwide corporate finance activities from 1980 to 1987, Schmeelk witnessed many of the most dramatic episodes in business history--and played a role in shaping more than a few of them. He helped Salomon Brothers become the leading U.S.

In this engaging memoir, Dick Schmeelk offers a lifetime of stories and insights about the amazing world of corporate finance--its struggles, pitfalls, challenges, and sometimes heady rewards. Youll learn about the human side of high finance: the red-eye flights, the friendships forged (and sometimes broken) under pressure, and the high-stakes games of bluff and counter-bluff that determine cash flows in the billions of dollars.

Youll meet some of the most remarkable business and political leaders of the past quarter-century, from Walter Wriston, David Rockefeller, and Pierre Trudeau to John Gutfreund, Paul Volcker, and Michael Bloomberg.

Most of all, youll get to know Dick Schmeelk--outspoken, funny, colorful, a canny financier who takes business seriously--but never himself.
