King Icahn : the biography of a renegade capitalist by Mark Stevens( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in English and Chinese and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this dramatic, deal-by-deal portrait of legendary and, until now, secretive financier Carl Icahn, bestselling business writer Mark Stevens takes us behind the scenes of some of the biggest deals in U.S. corporate history: Icahn's multibillion dollar raid on Phillips Petroleum; his bold move on Texaco's hidebound management, which netted him $500 million in the largest single transaction ever recorded by the New York Stock Exchange; Icahn's prolonged battle with CEO David Roderick to break apart the once mighty steel giant USX; and his stunning takeover of TWA. To write this fascinating book, Mark Stevens has utilized to the ultimate his incisive investigative skills and his extraordinary access to Icahn himself as well as Icahn's friends associates, adversaries, and critics - those who rode on his takeover bandwagon, and those who fell beneath its wheeling and dealing. The story he has to tell is that of a bookish boy from Bayswater who went to Princeton, studied philosophy, dropped out of medical school, landed as a minor player on Wall Street, and then had a billion-dollar epiphany - a means of "controlling the destiny of corporations" that would ultimately earn him his fortune. Along with the inside details of the deals that defined the high-flying eighties, Stevens provides a vivid, totally unauthorized profile of Icahn himself. At times deceptively disorganized and absentminded but a ruthlessly brilliant tactician when the chips are down, Icahn won his place at the pinnacle of capitalism by realizing that America's CEOs could be "persuaded" to spend millions in corporate funds or search for white knights to avert a takeover that might cost them their jobs. It was a plan of predatory genius; in the seventies and eighties Icahn garnered huge profits time after time - until he devoured TWA, and found that his ambitions were greater than his management talents. With his very fortune hanging in the balance, Icahn engaged in epic negotiations with the Pension Benefit Guarantee Board, engineering what may be the premier victory of his career. A fascinating tale with a cast of characters that includes Michael Milken, Ivan Boesky, T. Boone Pickens, Dennis Levine, and most of the other key players of the takeover era, King Icahn is the first biography of the business buccaneer who changed the course of corporate America

Your management sucks : why you have to declare war on yourself-- and your business by Mark Stevens( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like a mirror, this book reveals truths that you may deal with--or choose to ignore or put on the back burner. Everyone manages someone or something--even if only your own life and career. How well or poorly you manage has a profound impact on your personal success. Stevens makes the point that at any given time everyone's management can be improved and rethought to move away from bad patterns and habits. Stevens, who gives advice to Fortune 500 companies and entrepreneurial start-ups, teaches you to start by declaring constructive war on yourself, then leave the land of business-as-usual with the seven-point plan Stevens has used to build both his own career and his marketing and strategy consulting firm. You'll soon find that you're in the fast lane, easily outpacing your passive peers who rarely, if ever, challenge the how and why of what they do.--From publisher description
