This book is an epiphany,
This review is from: The Game: How The City Really Works (Paperback)
I'm at uni and wanted to find out more about the City so I bought some of the older, mouldier publications at my local Waterstone's. They were so turgid I gave up within days and returned to the book store where I saw a lovely pink copy of 'The Game' that had just arrived on the shelves. Enticing and relevant, is how it looked to me - and I was right!
This book blasts away all that silly City nomenclature and elucidates very clearly the more abstruse terms: by the end of my reading it, for example, I'd discovered a hedge fund manager is just a fancy term for someone who sits in front of a screen from 8am til 430pm, Monday to Friday, buying a share and then selling it again, ususally a few days' later.
Buy this book and absorb it, and you will know more about the City than the person interviewing you (however big the firm you are applying for) - and your resulting confidence will get you the job: it worked for me!
