Selection as wide as the Mississippi.
From the Publisher
In this shrewd and wickedly funny book, Michael Lewis describes an astonishing era and his own rake''s progress through a powerful investment bank. From an unlikely beginning (art history at Princeton?) he rose in two short years from Salomon Brothers trainee to Geek (the lowest form of life on the trading floor) to Big Swinging Dick, the most dangerous beast in the jungle, a bond salesman who could turn over millions of dollars'' worth of doubtful bonds with just one call.
