Really fun book to read for anyone interested in money markets. I'm typically not into "financial" books (that's my hubby's territory), but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Highly recommended.
In fiction there was Bonfire of the Vanities; in reality, there is Liar's Poker--the fascinating insider's account of what really happens on Wall Street. This irreverent and hilarious birds-eye view of Wall Street's heyday will appeal to anyone intrigued by the allure of million dollar deals.
These are two audio-cassettes totalling three hours. An ex-library copy in a plastic clamshell case.
"One of the Ten Best Business Books of the Year" Business Week
"Hilarious....one of the season's best financial books." Forbes
A bit outdated, but shows the harshness of Wall Street bond trading. Written before Lewis scored big with Moneyball.
This is an surprisingly funny book about Wall Street. Very well writen.
"Liar's Poker is the funniest book on Wall Street I've ever read."- Thomas Wolfe, author of Bonfire of the Vanities
This wild and wicked account makes the bond-tradeing business look like a cross between "Animal House" and "greed Incorporated"
"If you want to know what really happens on Wall Street and to have a good laugh in the process, you ought to read "Liar's Poker" ...A very well-written, funny, and insightful book that tells you things you ought to know the next time you field a call from your broker"
Funny, insightful. A terrific read.
My boyfriend read this and really enjoyed it. He has read other books by this author and enjoyed them also. He is in the financial field so this was especially interesting
