Detailed - and downright shocking - display of the egos and attitudes of hundreds of real people involved in the biggest private equity buyout of its day (and until relatively recent days). Describes far too many people to follow and too much detail, but the sheer magnitude of greed, excess and penis envy is amazing.

The DVD of the same title gives the abridged version of the story. It's quite hard to follow the story without knowing the background from the book. DVD also emphasizes Linda Robinso

Barbarians at the Gate: The Fall of RJR Nabisco is a book about the leveraged buyout (LBO) of RJR Nabisco , written by investigative journalists Bryan Burrough and John Helyar . The book is based upon a series of articles written by the authors for The Wall Street Journal [ citation needed ] . The book was later made into a made-for-TV movie by HBO , also called Barbarians at the Gate . The book centers on F. Ross Johnson , the CEO of RJR Nabisco, who planned to buy out the rest of the Nabisco shareholders .

Those opposed to Johnson's bid for the company, Henry Kravis and his cousin George R. Roberts , were among the pioneers of the leveraged buyout (LBO). Kravis was the first person Johnson talked to about doing the LBO and feels betrayed after learning that Johnson wants to do the deal with another firm, American Express 's former Shearson Lehman Hutton division. Ted Forstmann and his Forstmann Little buyout firm also played a prominent role.

After Kravis and Johnson are unable to reconcile their differences, a bidding war takes place which Johnson will eventually lose. The unfortunate side effect of the augmented buyout price to the shareholders is the creation of a worrying level of debt for the company.

Barbarian tribes during that period were quite fractured, none of them was able to to become a threat even though China itself was sundered in the midst of civil war. Border raid? Yes. Mercenary service? Yes. Barbarian invasion? No.
