BECAUSE THAT’S HOW WALL STREET WANTS IT
“[T]he always irreverent author of the Reformed Broker blog has written an excellent narrative that shares all of your broker’s dirty little secrets. Much like Michael Lewis’ Liar’s Poker captured the essence of 1980s institutional Wall Street, Brown’s Backstage Wall Street recreates the boiler room retail brokerage culture of the 1990s and early 2000s in vivid color.”
“With a smirk, a lashing wit, and an appropriate irreverence, Joshua Brown gives voice to what all investment professionals are—or should be—secretly thinking.”
—MICHAEL SANTOLI, Barron’s columnist
“The pages of this book are filled with colorful exposés of misconduct in the way Wall Street presents and sells itself (and its financial products offerings!). . . . Run don’t walk to read Brown’s chronicles of deception [perpetrated by] those wonderful folks on Wall Street, who nearly bankrupted the world’s fi nancial system a few short years ago.”
—DOUGLAS A. KASS, Seabreeze Partners Management, Inc.
“Everything you’ve ever read about Wall Street is a total lie. Everyone is lying to you every day. Until you read this book.”
—JAMES ALTUCHER, Formula Capital and author of I Was Blind but Now I See
“Joshua wants Wall Street to be awesome.
Entertaining and insightful
This was one of the first books of its kind that I have read, and it was great! I have just been hired by a warehouse firm, so I thought I would pick up a few books to get my feet wet. Backstage Wall Street had a ton of insight into what really drives The Street, firms, big and small, where to put your trust, and what to avoid like the plague. This book really is a great book for investors, brokers, and newbies such as myself whom are looking for a bit of a behind the scenes peek at the finance game.
Great book... Couldn't put it down... Would recommend to anyone!
