Yes because you can hear more feeling in authors words.
Very few people who have climb the corporate ladders of financial services industry have had the guts to expose these companies on their business practices. This was one of the gutsiest.
No. I would be interested in seeing more of his work.
When Pigs Fly.
Ive heard a lot of books on the 2008 meltdown, on Bernie Madoff, Lehman Bros etc. So maybe Im already a bit jaded by this genre. This book didnt say anything new. Its the usual story of Wall Street greed. I actually liked the fist part of the book. It gave me a good insight on working life on Wall Street.
yes for me
refreshing to see pricipled and motivated young person inaction as antidote to pure greed
I can connect the story to my own official life
Ladders on Craig's office - starting from Judy
Every successful man have atlest one Judy in his life (I too had one - although I had not capitalized the opportunity like Craig)
Wall street story is always interesting
Best thing about this book is that it was written and narrated by the person that lived through a tumultuous period on Wall Street. Sounded authentic to me.
Maybe, to try and understand some of the terminology better.
For sure. The way the story was presented, I found to be excellent. The only reason I gave it 3 stars is due to my own lack of understanding of the world of finance.
Probably, when Greg was offered the job to go to England and the confrontation that took place in the office of the witch.
Absoulutely!!!! I am now left with nightmares and a tremendouse fear of what little money that I have in my retirement, floating around on wall street.
Being narrated by the author made the listen more compelling. He gave a factual account without attacking the character of his collegues named in the book.
Greg Smith's moral integrity triumphed over greed.
Greg Smith's performance was excellent and the story interesting and easy to follow.
It was not written in a hateful manner. It is information everyone knows is going on but is not written about.
His voice made you understand his up bring in South Africa and the love of his new country.
The truth is always stranger then fiction
I live in Thailand, and love to listen to audible.
I enjoyed this book and it held my interest throughout. It's a real inside look at finance. I agree with Greg. Whatever happened to corporate responsibility? It seems like Goldman Sachs thinks it doesn't apply to them. This book tells an interesting story from college through vice presidency for Greg! Nice work.
