Liar’s Poker

I really enjoyed MoneyBall and had an interest in Wall Street so this book intrigued me. I bought it a few years ago but just got around to reading it. It had some really funny parts and was an eye opening education in how insane Wall Street was in the 1980’s. I had a hard time keeping up with all the characters. They had complicated names so I occasionally forgot who was who. It’s absolutely terrifying how casually these guys would move money around and manipulate the system for their own gain. It was like a frat house with practical jokes and lewd behaviour. I enjoyed it but it was a tough read for me. I’m not a finance professional so some of the financial jargon was over my head. I’m not sure I would trust any financial advisor or stock broker after reading this. This book proves they may not know anymore that I do!
