From mere trainee to lowly geek, to triumphal Big Swinging Dick: that was Michael Lewis' pell-mell progress through the dealing rooms of Salomon Brothers in New York and London during the heady mid-1980s when they were probably the world's most powerful and profitable merchant bank. A true-life Bonfire of the Vanities, funny, frightening, breathless and heartless, his is a tale of hysterical greed and ambition set in an obsessed, enclosed world.The trader buysthe bonds from X and sells them toY and takes out another eighth and the pension fund is happy to make a small profit in such a short time. ... Making profits on Wall Street isa bit like eating the stuffing from a turkey.
