    A remarkable writing debut, filled with indelible moments, The Buy Side shows as no book ever has the rewards – and dizzying temptations – of making a living on the Street.

    Courtney says: "Fascinating, honest tale of life on the "Street""
    "Honest, embarrassing, and wild Wall Street account"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to The Buy Side the most enjoyable?

    An almost unreal story of how a person can be sucked into the wild life of a Wall Street broker.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Turney Duff is very honest and open about moments of incredible highs and just as honest about the incredible lows of his life. And they are both on the absolute extreme ends of the spectrum.


    What does Turney Duff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Turney Duff is able to emphasize how a small town kid can allow himself to spiral out of control with a life of excess. It is an extremely entertaining book that gives a lot of information about how the Wall Street melt down came about.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    It was a great book to read to learn about the inner workings of corrupt Wall Street. A lot of what went on was on the news. This account allows the reader know more about the people and lifestyle of those who were in the middle of the Wall Street melt down.
