What follows is the story of a young man's education in two of the oldest human passions, love and money. Through a dark, sharp lens, Clancy Martin captures the luxury business in all its exquisite vulgarity and outrageous fraud, finding in the diamond-and-watch trade a metaphor for the American soul at work.
It was just kind of pointless.
Some sex, some drugs some action but there was no resounding moral or conclusion to the story.
It began well but than in the middle I said to myself "Wait a second what is the point"?

He has this on his list of five books to read this summer and it is the most pointless book I have read in a long time. Everything about it is unnecessarily gross, for no reason. I would have enjoyed learning about the jewelry business, without the theft and drugs and uninteresting relationships.
