Acclaim for Trader's Tales

"I have rarely gone through a day without hearing a joke about Wall Street. Ron Insana captures the essence of the culture that creates those jokes with one hilarious tale after another. This book is great fun." -Stanley Druckenmiller Managing Director, Soros Fund Management.

"Ribald tales and outrageous jokes are as much a part of Wall Street as subordinated debentures, and Ron Insana has sifted through years of financial lore to collect the best of them. A funny, funny book, certain to draw a chuckle and a wry smile of recognition from even the stiffest Masters of the Universe." -Bryan Burrough Coauthor, Barbarians at the Gate.

"You can't beat Wall Street for witty and outrageous behavior. Ron Insana captures it." -Michael Steinhardt Managing Partner, Steinhardt Partners.

"Having worked on Wall Street for 20 years, I thought I had heard and seen it all. The secrets revealed in this book, however, are absolutely shocking." -Elaine Garzarelli Director, Garzarelli Capital, Inc.

"Wall Street has lots of traders' tales which bring us insight into the lighter side of our business. This book should bring fun for us all." -Mario Gabelli Chairman, Gabelli Funds, Inc.
