The only thing better than a great book is finding an author who's books just keep getting better. Bryan Burrough has been one of those authors for me since Barbarians at the Gate. He has a knack for telling complex, multi-year, multi-character stories in a way that informs and entertains. It's one thing to explain how the RJR Nabisco imploded, it's something else entirely to make it a fun read. And that's what Burrough does every time: he tells a great story.
The Big Rich is another instant classic. Two chapters in I'm so hooked I nearly missed by stop - fortunately Grand Central is a terminal but still the trains do go back out. So eat right and exercise, Bryan! I'm counting on you for another dozen books.
