Overview
Risk: success requires risk—risk that stands firmly on the platform of integrity. Reward: integrity inspires reward—generosity toward those who helped you succeed. Repeat: generosity fuels repetition—helping others to forge their own way forward. These are the lifelong tenets of Eric Gleacher, the Marine Corps officer and investment banker who, along with a handful of others, dominated the Mergers & Acquisitions industry in the latter half of the twentieth century and transformed the face of American business. Risk. Reward. Repeat. chronicles his compelling journey: from a profoundly isolated childhood to the hardcore leadership lessons of the Marine Corps, to Lehman Brothers and Morgan Stanley, to his own firm, going toe-to-toe with the giants of Wall Street. Gleacher's book puts today's culture of hype, tricks, and life-hacks to shame with its simple, timeless formula: be yourself, tell the truth, lead by example, do your best, own your mistakes, work hard, take risks, earn your success, and pay it forward. All of the profits from the sale of this book will be donated for charitable purposes.
