As an only child, books were my world. I love to read and audiobooks are essential in my world today. I must admit I am somewhat dependent (addicted?) to audible audiobooks. Too easy. Too good!

    Story

    I took a risk on buying this book as I am completely illiterate in all things Wall Street. It paid off quite nicely because the author takes us through his journey on Wall Street from his own beginning as an painfully clueless intern. He explains the function of a Wall Street trader in a way that almost anyone can understand and I found it fascinating. He takes the reader with him as he moves up the ladder, becoming one of the biggest names on the Buy Side. While doing this, Duff seamlessly delves into the accompanying lifestyle of the trader-where more money can be made in one day than many people make in a decade. The excess is almost inevitable but it's the drugs that are Duff's final undoing. And eventually, his redoing. Ultimately, he sees the emptiness in all of it but not until he goes through his own version of hell. The beauty of this book is that you need not be a finance major to enjoy it, because the book is not about finance, or stocks, or trading at all. It's about our ever-increasing need to find something outside of ourselves to make us happy, and never finding it.

    "Terrible waste $ and a lot of time"

    Overall

    This is my first time ever writing a review. I am taking the time to do this to save you, the stranger I don't even know the horror of this lame and useless book. Hours and hours of droning on about these few boring people who magically were successful after going to Harvard Business School!? Give me a break, this book is insulting to me and to all the men and women who start businesses with little formal eduction, credit cards for financing and their spare room as an office. Instead of this pile of cow dung go read Rich Dad/Poor Dad before you quit your job, The 4 Hour Work week by Timothy Ferris, Rework by Jason Fried, The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor, and The Big Leap by Gay Hendricks. Unless you went to Harvard Business school, then read this and call all your friends and laugh about how fun it is to part of the ruling class in this country. Bill Murphy, you have brought shame on your family... fall on your sword.

    If you could sum up Society's Child in three words, what would they be?

    I liked the personal touches in this autobiography, especially the guitar playing and the singing. It was very entertaining.

    Janis Ian was catapulted into the spotlight in 1966 at the age of 15, when her soul-wrenching song "Society's Child" became a hit. But this was only the beginning of a long and illustrious career. In Society's Child, Janis Ian provides a relentlessly honest account of the successes and failures - and the hopes and dreams - of an extraordinary life.

    In 2006, hedge fund manager John Paulson realized something few others suspected--that the housing market and the value of subprime mortgages were grossly inflated and headed for a major fall. Paulson's background was in mergers and acquisitions, however, and he knew little about real estate or how to wager against housing. He had spent a career as an also-ran on Wall Street. But Paulson was convinced this was his chance to make his mark. He just wasn't sure how to do it....

A landmark publication full of startling revelations, the book indelibly alters our image of this most enigmatic capitalist. Born the son of a flamboyant, bigamous snake-oil salesman and a pious, straitlaced mother, Rockefeller rose from rustic origins to become the world’s richest man by creating America’s most powerful and feared monopoly, Standard Oil. Branded "the Octopus" by legions of muckrakers, the trust refined and marketed nearly 90 percent of the oil produced in America.
