Abstract: This title features an awesome, penetrating exposure of the greed, frailty and goings-on of those who determine our lives - the moneymen! The book is unique in that it discloses without restraint the true experiences of financiers from all levels of success and from all parts of the world. It is easy to read and consumable by a general audience. The book holds a universal appeal. While the stories centre around persons in the investment business, their experiences are no doubt mirrored by any person who is truly passionate about their career. The book offers insight into the psyche, tensions and joys of investment bankers, money managers and deal doers; clear expositions of what is sacrificed to win the big deal; penetrating view of the high flying female financier; and, sensitive examination of what people with more money than most ever dare dream of, do with their money.It also offers a disturbing analysis of how money motivates and yet destroys the lives and soul of the moneymen; and original research, into the lives of the men and women of money. Just plain greedy? Intrinsically corrupt? Or victims of the greatest game on earth, that of making money? The Elephant Hunters penetrates the secret world of big deals and investment banking and exposes the psyche and activities of one of the most powerful sects - financiers.
