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.

A bit outdated, but shows the harshness of Wall Street bond trading. Written before Lewis scored big with Moneyball.

"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"
