Dull....is the only word to describe this book. It focuses on the well publicised stories of 7 or 8 individuals mainly involved in crude oil trading. The author has obviously had one or two interviews with a few of these and has managed to string out a book on the results. There is no description of the rationale behind any of the big trades that the individuals made so the book is of little practical value. I managed to get to the end...just. Having said that the book was well written so I hope that the author has a go at something with more substance next time round.

Mishmash of mildly interesting anecdotes from the commodity trading world. All known to market participants and somewhat random for any other sort of reader. Have no idea post reading it why the author believes commodity traders run the world - indeed, she doesn't make a compelling argument that they affect prices other than in the very short term.

Where are Gunvor, Trafi, and the ags traders. Too much Goldman and other "boring" listed players
