Ackman and Icahn engaged in an uninterrupted, twenty-seven-minute televised war of accusations and insults over a company called Herbalife, on which they had opposing views--and opposing financial bets.

For this book, Wapner has gained unprecedented access to all the players and unravels this remarkable war of egos, showing the extreme measures the participants were willing to take.
