“Magnificent…unfolds a tale of extravagant wealth with an even more dazzling economy of means.”—Ben Brantley, The New York Times

On a cold September morning in 1844, a young man from Bavaria stands on a New York dockside, dreaming of a new life in the new world. He is joined by his two brothers, and an American epic begins. 163 years later, the firm they establish—Lehman Brothers—spectacularly collapses into bankruptcy and triggers the largest financial crisis in history.
