Wall Street is a funny business. All you have is your reputation. Taint it and someone else will fill your shoes. Longevity comes from maintaining that reputation.

Ask Jack Grubman, the All-Star telecom analyst from Salomon Smith Barney; uber-banker Frank Quattrone at CS First Boston; Morgan Stanley's Mary "Queen of the Net" Meeker; or Merrill Lynch's Henry Blodget.

Well, they probably won't tell you anything. But have I got some great stories for you.

Editorial Reviews

“A deliciously naughty new book. [Kessler] was right there, on the inside. Having made his fortune, he now seems to feel free to say what he wants about his former firms and colleagues. [It] will not particularly please them...it will interest the rest of us. I finished it in a gulp, perfectly astonished.” (Michael Lewis on Bloomberg News)
