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.

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
