This was a great book. Willett perfectly satirized a 21st century American family--complete with Blackberry addictions, luxury SUVs, and private schools. And Willett's humor was just spot on. At times, this book reminded me of the movie The Office, with the wit and irony of the main character and the characters surrounding him. I laughed out loud and cringed, but really enjoyed it all the way through.

Amusing novel taking place in the financial world of post-9/11 Boston. As a blurb on the front cover says, it's very much in the vein of "Bonfire of the Vanities". Not the best novel I've ever read, but enjoyable--and you get a painless lesson in economics to boot!

This book is so funny without being obvious. The author is a wonderful suspense/thriller writer, its exciting to find him able to write humor also. I throughly enjoyed this novel. A great read.

In the same vein as Bonfire of the Vanities for the new millenium, but with more optimism. Loved it!
