Pretty Tame By Today's Standards
on 2 February 2016
Don’t know why this is considered a ‘Wall Street classic.’ It’s fairly tame stuff and doesn’t really note much of interest. It also covers a fairly short career (2 or 3 years from what I gathered) and *SPOILER ALERT* he just quits in the end before having made any real big bucks.
The Audio version is narrated by Lewis, which is a mistake. His tone is a bit dull and hard to listen to. For some reason they also add in a totally unnecessary, 30 second, Seinfeld-type groovy tune at the start of the chapters over the narrator’s voice.
I’m a big fan of Lewis’ newer stuff, but I wasn’t convinced by this. Maybe I’m missing something, but anyone who works in an office could probably write a similar book.
