The Sandy Weill story is truly one for the ages. Starting with $30,000 he borrowed in 1960, he created one of the leading securities firms in the U.S. After selling his company and becoming president of American Express, he then took over a sleepy consumer loan company and, over the next seventeen years, transformed it into the leading global bank: Citigroup. As Citigroup's chairman and CEO, Weill delivered an astounding 2,600 percent return to investors - better than Jack Welch or Warren Buffett during that same period.

Now, for the first time, Sandy Weill reveals the unvarnished truth about his astonishing life and career. He talks about his Brooklyn childhood, his competitors and colleagues, and his daily inspiration: his wife, Joan. And along the way, he shares the most important lessons he learned in business and in life. The Real Deal is the real deal - the true tale of a legendary financial superstar who always loved the game more than  the gold.

"I've been friends with Sandy Weill for nearly thirty years, and this book is vintage
Sandy: at every turn it's spirited, passionate, and brutally honest."- President Gerald Ford

"A consummate innovator, Sandy Weill has written a memoir which uniquely brings to life the dramatic evolution of the modern financial services industry." -Alan Greenspan

"The Real Deal doesn't mince words on what it takes to be sucessful in business and life.
Sandy's drive and hard earned lessons resonate throughout this fascinating book." -Henry Kissinger

"Sandy Weill reinvented Wall Street, redefined banking and reshaped the world of financial services. He is a visionary who changed the world of business for all of us, and in doing so became that rarest of all breeds... a legend in his own time." - Ken Chenault
