"Exile on Wall Street offers Wall Street's rarest commodity: the truth about our nation's largest banks and how they almost toppled capitalism. If you want to know the sickening truth about the largest banks, read Mike Mayo's exposé."
—Harry Markopolos, author of No One Would Listen
"Mike Mayo is one of the best financial analysts on Wall Street. He brings clarity to a world full of uncertainty."
—Maria Bartiromo, leading financial commentator
“Mike has long advocated for the investor. If only directors of business corporations with the legal and moral obligation to their shareholder base would emulate his diligence on their behalf, then good corporate governance would be restored. Every public company director ought read his book!”
—Thomas Garrott, ex-CEO of National Commerce bank and an ex-director of SunTrust
