Dear Chairman: Boardroom Battles and the Rise of Shareholder Activism

This is a new book that was just highlighted in the CBS: Graham and Doddsville Newsletter.  The description and subject matter sound like it will be a fun read.

I pre-ordered it for my kindle, so I will report back after I have read some of it.


Is the whole interview on the manual of ideas site?  I don't see it, but I'm only a standard member.  Maybe that's the problem.


I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others. 

There are some great stories about some well known and not so well known investors.  The book covers many different generations/time frames, which made it interesting as a business history book as well. 

The two chapters I liked the most focused on Ross Perot and Karla Scherer.  I wasn't familiar with the battles they had with GM and RP Scherer and they were great to read.  Actually, after having read about Karla Scherer, I would love to meet her.  She comes across as a very sharp and tough lady. 

must read

Outstanding book. Well researched and concise.
