    Would be five stars as this book is written very well quick easy insightful read.Minus two stars because the conclusions and perspectives are completely one sided what a shame.Essentially the author s views were tainted by those youngsters who failed to succeed on Wall Street and therefore backward rationalises their failures post hoc.It entirely suited the author who, remember, chose a career as a journalist to accept his subjects views at face value and therefore confirm his pre formed conclusions instead of considering the alternative perspective i.e despite these candidates being of the highest intellectual calibre, the majority lacked the commerciality, cool headedness, self awareness, sense of humour and strength of character required to succeed at a top investment bank.

    I enjoyed the first half of the book it was interesting following the lives of young analysts as they begin their journey on Wall Street.However, the second half of the book becomes very cynical and negative The author s personal dislike of Wall Street comes across very strongly, and he makes disparaging comments about the people who choose to progress their careers in the world of finance.

    I read this book in 2 days as I was so completely enthralled by it As a student about to choose a career this book is really powerful in not only detailing experiences of those on Wall Street but going into depth about the kinds of moral choices and questions that come up.If you ve even so much as thought about going into IB, buy this book It is utterly brilliant and even if it doesn t change your views it certainly is a good read.

    This was an absolute delight to read Very informative also The author clearly put lot of time and effort into researching this subject plus his style of writing is funny and intriguing I will read it again and can t wait to purchase Kevin Roose s next book.

  5. Dr Dr says:

    Essential reading when your children are bright and asking for advice about their career Reminds me of life as a junior doctor and the murderous routine with the promise of a better life but of course morally much palatable.

    Interesting, but would have benefitted from tighter editing.

    Insightful look into the boot camp style induction to employment in the large finance houses Author s brush with the Masters of the Universe also very insightful

    An interesting and well written book but with a strong bias against the financial industry The idea of showing the post crisis industry through the experience of a sample of junior analysts is quite well developed in the book But the author does not reveal how the investment banking industry provides its juniors not only with the labor discipline but also the skills and the approach for troubleshooting as well as the love for innovation The book focuses very much in the routine and the stress of the juniors in their first two years, but probably this is not very different of what happens in other industries nowadays Maybe the complementary view of the senior bankers would have been useful for the purpose of the book

    El libro muestra desde la perspectiva de reci n licenciados como es el mundo de la banca de inversi n de Wall Street sin profundizar en exceso , como se trabaja y que sienten dichos j venes.

    Young money delivers what it promises and little Kevin Roose is clearly not Michael Lewis, and while this book discusses the lives of the young people it follows I wouldn t say it delves into their lives or offers much of a window into the systemic issues that once existed or those that persist to this day If you want an easy, yet somewhat unambitious, read then give this book a shot.

    This book offers a look behind the scenes in a closed and bizarre world of big money Quick and fun to read.
