 Anita Raghavan's The Billionaire's Apprentice chronicles the rise and fall of the Galleon Hedge Fund, its founder and accomplices.

Raj Rajaratnam and his friends--mainly Rajat Gupta,former head of McKinsey and board member at Goldman Sachs--were part of top political and corporate circles in both India and the U.S.
