'So what' I hear you say, there are loads of patronising books that do that. This one , however , is different as it doesn't crawl to the industry or treat the business like rocket science. And its VERY well informed and a perfect blend of academic information, wry observation and downright sarcasm.
The book deals with the nuts and bolts of the daily activities of Investment Banks - brokers, clients, analysts,IPOs, mergers etc - and assumes the reader to be interested and intelligent.
I've been a retail trader for many years now , on the 'outside-looking-in' ,and I've been waiting for someone to spot the gap in the market for a book like this. If you trade then just get the book - you can use 'Look Inside' to get a taste. Even if you know it all it will raise knowing smiles as it confirms your suspicions. ( The narrative concerning Brokers is a hoot ).
It gives a wonderful account of the roles and motivations of all the players but avoids the 'War stories', 'When I was a lad' type of tired anecdotes and there are no 'City Boy' excesses either.
Finally, and importantly for finance books, its bang up-to-date.
