520 |a In this collection of his best work, Nocera explores how we define good guys and bad guys in business and concludes that things are often not what they seem. It turns out that there are surprisingly good qualities in classic villains like junk bond king Michael Milken and notorious stock analyst Henry Blodget. And some business celebrities who are widely admired, such as Steve Jobs, are not quite the good guys they appear to be on the surface. Nocera also offers a fresh perspective on some of today's biggest controversies, such as global warming, Apple's iPhone, CEO compensation, the tobacco industry, short sellers, and much more.--From publisher description.
