by Tim Bouquet (Author), Byron Ousey (Author). As this book shows, money and business logic prevailed in the end over politics and protection. Cold Steel describes the often brutal and chaotic five-month battle between Mittal and Arcelor.

Billions of dollars were at stake. Only one could prevail.

Corporate takeovers can be as punishing as a heavyweight fight, and Cold Steel chronicles one of the most contentious ever. The high-stakes story reads like a gripping novel, with a rags-to-riches success story, international intrigue, astronomical volumes of money, and electrifying plot twists. With billions in cash and hundreds of thousands of jobs at stake, Arcelor owner Guy Dolle, a cocksure Frenchman accustomed to succeeding in a tough industry and aided by the Luxembourg government, attempted to take over Mittal Steel from rags-to-riches billionaire Lakshmi Mittal, the fifth richest man in the world. The resulting conflict — an epic corporate battle that sent shockwaves through the political corridors of Europe, strained the world's financial markets, enriched 30 hedge funds, and permanently transformed the global steel industry — is meticulously detailed in Cold Steel, the riveting story of dueling titans of the business world.

Excellent read

I like narratives about the struggle, interests, strategy and technicalities ( valuation, legal stuff) involved in M&A. This book has all of these and found it a great read. Having myself recently concluded a transaction involving Luxembourg as the home country of target, I found it specially interesting. Good book overall

The book enlightens Indian entrepreneurs that how the promoters have persistently focused on target of acquisition of the trophy asset "Arcell Steel" by making multiple negotiations intelligently despite stiff resistance from "Arcell Steel" promoters and French Government, a great Case Study for MBA Students and steel industry aspirants.

I knew the story of the takeover from newspapers and financial news sites but the book still took me to a much deeper level. Although I liked the book overall, I found it a little difficult to get into a rhythm reading this book and found it a little long winded. If you are a student or fan of mergers and acquisitions, general business, or the movie Wall Street then this is a good book for you.

Great book! Can;t keep it down.
