  • Liar's Poker

    Being written in and about the 80s financial boom, one would expect this book to be dated. On the contrary, however, it really describes the initial stages of the financial management incompetence and greed that have led to the current conditions, including the 2008 crash... The seeds were clearly sown in the mortgage and junk bond "advancements" of the 70s and 80s with a straight line extending to the current mess of dark pools, HF trading, CDOs, etc. It gives particular insight to the moral corruption not only of the individuals but of the corporations that are supposed to be aiding their customers in sound financial management but instead play them as suckered for their own benefit...

  • Interesting look at the Market

    Very well written and enjoyable to read. Surprising how markets are shaped and created and how Caveat Emptor should never be forgotten. Most surprising was how much people working with these huge sums of money can be so wrong with disastrous results for their customers as well as with their own future.

  • Liar's Poker

    A fascinating account of the big money and big egos in operation behind the scenes in the western financial system. A compelling read for anyone that wants to participate in the crap shoot that has become the global finiancial industry where it is the less than conventional thinkers that cause the profound innovations that have shaped national economies for better and worse.

  • Promising title

    The outline of the plot looked good but fell short in the telling. The insight into the murky finance world was enlightening and was the basis of enjoyment of what the book to relate, but the repetitive presentational style did much to spoil what would have been a fascinating read. That was what I was hoping for.

    Thanks for your feedback!
