Produktbeschreibung

The original classic that revealed the truth about ambition, greed and excess in London and Wall Street, by the author of #1 bestsellers THE BIG SHORT and THE FIFTH RISK.
__________

The time was the 1980s. The place was Wall Street. The game was called Liar's Poker.

Michael Lewis was fresh out of Princeton and the London School of Economics when he landed a job at Salomon Brothers, one of Wall Street's premier investment firms. During the next three years, Lewis rose from callow trainee to bond salesman, raking in millions for the firm and cashing in on a modern-day gold rush.

From mere trainee to lowly geek, to triumphal Big Swinging Dick: that was Michael Lewis's pell-mell progress through the dealing rooms of Salomon Brothers in New York and London during the heady mid-80s when they were probably the world's most powerful and profitable merchant bank.

Funny, frightening, breathless and heartless, Liar's Poker is the original story of hysterical greed and excessive ambition, one that is now more potent and enthralling than ever.
__________

'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.' The Sunday Times

'So memorable and alive . . . one of those rare works that encapsulate and define an era.' Fortune

'The funniest book on Wall Street I've ever read.' Tom Wolfe

'Wickedly funny' Daily Express

'Hilarious' New York Times 

Kritik

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