Anita Raghavan's journalistic and writing skill comes through on every page of THE BILLIONAIRE'S APPRENTICE. I couldn't put it down; it's a true story that reads like a thriller.
--William D. Cohan, bestselling author of The Last Tycoons, House of Cards, and Money and Power
THE BILLIONAIRE'S APPRENTICE is that rare work of nonfiction that follows an ambitious hero as he climbs to the pinnacle of power inside the top boardrooms of corporate America, gets seduced, and falls in a spectacular insider trading scandal. This is a modern-day Greek tragedy that plays out among the upper echelons of Wall Street, Silicon Valley, and the global business elite. Doggedly reported and utterly compelling.

Raghavan excels with her account.... She provides an insightful account of South Asian immigration to the U.S. since the 1960s and shows how relations established in India's elite education system provided some of the ties that bound the conspirators together.
Through meticulous research, copious history, vivid characters, and entertaining prose, Raghavan weaves together many different worlds, eras, and personality types to deliver a compelling view of the multi-cultural politics of today's Wall Street.
