"This is the first book to go beyond what happened and why and into today′s most pressing question for the industry, which is ′how do we adapt to and thrive in the post–crisis regulatory environment?′ " Robert P. Kelly, Chairman and CEO, BNY Mellon
"This book provides a broad and easy–to–understand synopsis of the Dodd–Frank Act coupled with useful strategies, tactics, suggestions, and ten very valuable lessons for winning, coping, and, indeed, succeeding in this radically new and challenging regulatory environment." Dick Kovacevich, retired chairman and CEO, Wells Fargo and Company

"This is an absolutely critical must–read for financial services executives. It′s the only book of its kind that provides a granular ′how–to′ guide to managing our businesses in the new regulatory environment. An excellent read!" Norman R. Sorensen, President and CEO, Principal International, Inc.
"This book could only have been written by someone who has a thorough understanding of the political process and financial markets and institutions. Particularly notable is that it describes the impact of Dodd–Frank and identifies ten clear lessons for bank management. This book should be required reading for today′s financial managers." Mark Olson, Co–Chairman, Treliant Risk Advisors; former governor, Federal Reserve System; former chairman, Public Company Accounting Oversight Board
"In describing the ′new regulatory reality,′ Greg Wilson does a masterful job in describing how we got here, where we are, and where we are going.
