Despite the gloomy title, this is an entertaining book. It is a practical guide, often accompanied by amusing observations, to insolvency and recovery. It is written by two US investment bankers but offers insight throughout as to the perspective of all parties likely to be involved in insolvency related transactions. While it continually explains how an investment banker would deal with various situations and provides many examples of Gordian Group success stories, the inclusion of the probably views of other parties results in a comprehensive guide to distressed situations.
