Praise for The Big Four

‘Who would have ever thought that one would find a deep understanding of the issues facing today’s Big Four in the rise and fall of the Medici bank? Gow and Kells provide a riveting  analysis of the historical antecedents to today’s Big Four structures and strategies and leave us totally unsettled in considering the industry’s future. A unique approach of historical comparisons results in a must-read volume of an essential industry that is poorly understood. I could not put it down! —Leonard A. Schlesinger, Harvard Business School
