From mere trainee to lowly geek, to triumphal Big Swinging Dick: that was Michael Lewis' pell-mell progress through the dealing rooms of Salomon Brothers in New York and London during the heady mid-1980s when they were probably the world's most powerful and profitable merchant bank.



A true-life Bonfire of the Vanities, funny, frightening, breathless and heartless, his is a tale of hysterical greed and ambition set in an obsessed, enclosed world.

Review:

An amazing book, readable, funny and mind-boggling ... one of the great business books of all time (Punch)

If you thought Gordon Gekko of the Wall Street movie was an implausibly corrupt piece of fiction, see how you like the real thing. This rip-the-lid-off account of the bond-dealing brouhaha is the work of a real-life bond salesman ... Read all about it: headlong greed, inarticulate obscenity, Animal House horseplay ... (The Sunday Times)

Immense verve and wit (20/20 Magazine)

A highly immoral book (Daily Mail)

Wickedly funny (Daily Express)

As traders would say, this book is a buy (Financial Times)

Book Description:

'The funniest book about Wall Street I have ever read' Tom Wolfe

Reissue of Michael Lewis' bestselling classic tale of greed and corruption
