5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent & honest account of a life of excess, 30 Oct. 2013
This review is from: The Buy Side: A Wall Street Trader's Tale of Spectacular Excess (Hardcover)
A story about the excesses of the 90's and 00's of a Wall Street trader. This isn't an account of the financial crisis (not sure why you'd expect one from the synopsis) or how to beat the market - it's a man's honest tale about living life beyond the full, losing personal control and paying the price. The honesty of the author is refreshing and there's a point in the book (not a spoiler) where I was shouting out 'No! No! No!' in disbelief and sympathy with the turn of events.

I think this book goes a lot further than just being a story about Wall Street - it's a story about a man learning to accept his own failure. Definitely worth a read - and you don't really have to understand trading or finance to fully appreciate it.
