Publisher's Summary

The time was the 1980s. The place was Wall Street. The game was called Liar's Poker.

Michael Lewis was fresh out of Princeton and the London School of Economics when he landed a job at Salomon Brothers, one of Wall Street's premier investment firms. During the next three years, Lewis rose from callow trainee to bond salesman, raking in millions for the firm and cashing in on a modern-day gold rush.

This is a summary of Michael Lewis' book Liar's Poker: Rising Through the Wreckage on Wall Street. It is the culmination of those heady, frenzied years - a behind-the-scenes look at a unique and turbulent time in American business. From the frat-boy camaraderie of the 41st-floor trading room to the killer instinct that made ambitious young men gamble everything on a high-stakes game of bluffing and deception, here is Michael Lewis' knowing and hilarious insider's account of an unprecedented era of greed, gluttony, and outrageous fortune.

This summary is aimed at those who want to capture the gist of the book but don't have the current time to listen to the whole thing. You get the main summary along with all of the benefits and lessons the actual book has to offer.

Ant Hive Media reads every chapter, extracts the understanding, and leaves you with a new perspective and time to spare. We do the work so you can understand the book in minutes, not hours.
