The Billionaire's Apprentice: The Rise of The Indian-American Elite and The Fall of The Galleon Hedge Fund

Book Title

 By Anita Raghavan 


This book details the relationship between the rise of the Indian-American elite and the collapse of the Galleon Group, a hedge fund that managed more than $7 billion in assets. The Billionaire’s Apprentice follows a sensational case that pitted U.S. prosecutor Preet Bharara, the son of Indian immigrants, against the best and brightest of the South Asian business community. At the center of the case was self-described King of Kings, Galleon's founder Raj Rajaratnam, a Sri-Lankan-born, Wharton-educated billionaire.

Investigative journalist Anita Raghavan criss-crosses the globe from Wall Street boardrooms to Delhi's Indian Institute of Technology as she reveals an incredible tale of triumph, temptation and tragedy.
