    Join David Denby, New Yorker critic and otherwise sensible man, on a whirlwind ride through an exuberant stock market, investment feeding frenzy, and the cataclysmic result of greed and illusion.

    loix says: "can't imagine what the unabridged version is like"
    "Candid and Revealing"
    Overall

    A very candid first person account of the excesses of the late 90 's tech stock "bubble", viewed from the perspective of an "average" individual investor, except that the author got to know Sam Waksal and Henry Blodget personally.

    Some of the meditations on the seven sins are too long and winded; but overall, I found the book revealing and interesting.
