This is the first author since Michael Lewis, as far as I know, who gave a true and fun glimpse into London's high finance and what really happens. It's nice to have such a bright, original and highly experienced insider speaking for the City.
As a former graduate working in the City, I can say that this book reads very true to life. When you are living in the world described in the book, you think that it's normal. It's only once you get out that you realise it was a bizarre and unpleasant way of wasting years of your life.
Once again this is a very funny tale of how Dave rises from the disaster of his last bonus payout, managing to double deal and bullsh** his way to the top of the ladder, making plenty of fair weather friends on the way up and even more enemies who want to see him go straight back down again. He appears to get his come uppance at the end of the book. Or does he? There seems to be a third book on it's way according to this book, which will be called 'The ego has landed'. This book states it will be released in October 07, but so far it has not appeared on Amazon. I wait with bated breath for the next instalment!
As such it uses Hart as a caricature of an investment banker, pretty much forming some of the less 'wholesome' characteristics the author perceived in the breed during his own years in the city into one person, who will easily be hated but whose unlikely exploits will eqaully be secretly enjoyed by the readers. Like At Bonus Time, No-one Can Hear You Scream I find this book not as good as Bombardiers but it certainly works for killing a couple of hours on a plane or beach - it is entertaining but not necessarily spectacular.
In this book Hart finds a reversal of fortunes and goes right to the very top, exploring what life is like there - finding much to like but not really fundamentally deviating from his 'true self' as a result.Read more ›
Overall i really enjoyed this book, it made quite easy reading and i found i could quite imagine how this could be real-life.

This man is a genius, you are in for a treat, just take care through the parts where it reminds you of yourself.

Given the funny and insightful first Dave Hart, it was a big surprise to find out that not only is there a sequel but that it's even better than the first! Read morePublished on 9 Nov. 2013 by Book Reviewer
i relished the wry ironic parody of 'bonus time' and was delighted by the development of events in book 2. The fun continues apacePublished on 14 April 2013 by A. Morrish
This book is neither funny nor about banking (I've been in the industry 25 years). Just an unimaginative writer's attempt to cash in on the 'hate the bankers' zeitgeist. Read morePublished on 4 Feb. 2011 by Lupo
Whereas I found the book entertaining I thought it was nowhere near the 'Tales form the Square Mile' of the same author, which I gave a good review separately. Read morePublished on 7 Mar. 2009 by Nomad in Caledonia
