REVIEW for The Buy Side



A huge thank you to Random House for reaching out to me with this book.

TITLE:             The Buy Side

AUTHOR:       Turney Duff


GENRE:          Memoir

RATING:    
 


I love, love reading memoirs that are honest and offer me an "all access" pass to a place or person that I would not normally be able to gain any info on.  The Buy Side delivers this and more.

This memoir, written about Wall Street truly exposes all the dark secrets that we may have suspected, but could never "put" our fingers on.

Author Duff obviously knows his stuff and, if he doesn't, he did a thorough job of investigating, except that this book is so well written and the stories (and people) are so well and thoroughly depicted that you just know that this memoir is about hands on experience and not about any information gleamed through research or found in any book.

I love that this book gives us a dirty but reality based looked at what the people on Wall Street really think about the rest of us and its scary as hell.

Well written, riveting, frustrating and even maddening, this book is a must read.

I read The Wolf of Wall Street hoping for something similar but I found the author rather disgusting.
