Dethroning The King

Dethroning the King

I recently finished reading, Dethroning the King: The Hostile Takeover Of Anheuser-Busch, An American Icon.

The book, written by Financial Times columnist Julie Macintosh, gives the reader an astonishingly detailed look inside the takeover of Anheuser-Busch by InBev, a Belgian company run by Brazilians. Because the transaction occurred smack dab in the middle of the housing crisis in 2008, many didn't pay attention at the time.

If you like business history and have an interest in the mechanics of enormous organizations and enormous transactions, you'll love Dethroning the King.
