In Wall Street lingo, tombstones are the black-bordered newspaper notices of corporate mergers. Lederman, who created the recapitalization technique while a partner at Wachtell Lipton, presents richly detailed stories from the takeover wars of the 1980's, informed by his intimate knowledge of the strategies and personalities involved.
