For anyone who's been stuck in that quandary -- and haven't we all? -- Karen Blumenthal's book is a ray of sunshine. She astutely focuses on Starbucks, a well-known company that we all "sort of" understand. Then, chapter by chapter, she takes us behind the scenes to show how this company's financial destiny is really being shaped.
Some parts reminded me of a high-stakes judo match. (Short-sellers vs. everyone else.) Other sections read more like the journal of a lone explorer in dangerous territory (Individual investors trying to make the right decisions.) And the book's examination of hedge-fund strategies is like looking at your own blood under a microscope. It's a lucid peek at a hidden world that's packed full of weird action all the time.
For anyone whose life can be helped -- or hurt -- by what happens in the stock market, this is a fascinating and enormously valuable book.
