Reviews

As described by Lewis, liar's poker is a game played in idle moments by workers on Wall Street, the objective of which is to reward trickery and deceit. With this as a metaphor, Lewis describes his four years with the Wall Street firm Salomon Brothers, from his bizarre hiring through the training program to his years as a successful bond trader. Lewis illustrates how economic decisions made at the national level changed securities markets and made bonds the most lucrative game on the Street. His description of the firm's personalities and of the events from 1984 through the crash of October 1987 are vivid and memorable. Readers of Tom Wolfe's The Bonfire of the Vanities ( LJ 11/15/87) are likely to enjoy this personal memoir. BOMC and Fortune Book Club selection.-- Joseph Barth, U.S. Military Acad . Lib., West Point, N.Y.

'An amazing book, readable, funny and mind-boggling ... one of the great business books of all time' -- Punch 'Read all about it: headlong greed, inarticulate obscenity, Animal House horseplay ...' -- The Sunday Times 'Immense verve and wit' -- 20/20 Magazine 'A highly immoral book' -- Daily Mail 'Wickedly funny' -- Daily Express 'As traders would say, this book is a buy' -- Financial Times
