The Bull of Heaven also delves into shareholder activism and why enacting change in the way companies do business is essential to the health of financial markets and the economy as a whole.

Nawar Alsaadi's first foray into shareholder activism came in 2011 when he discovered that Equal Energy, a company he had invested in, was not serving the needs of its shareholders.
