Straight to Hell
True Tales of Deviance, Debauchery and Billion-Dollar Dealsav John Lefevre119Skickas inom 5-8 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.Over the past three years, the notorious @GSElevator Twitter feed has offered a hilarious, shamelessly voyeuristic look into the real world of international finance. Hundreds of thousands followed the account, Goldman Sachs launched an internal investigation, and when the true identity of the man behind it all was revealed, it created a national media sensation - but that's only part of the story. Where @GSElevator captured the essence of the banking elite with curated jokes and submissions overheard by readers, Straight to Hell adds John LeFevre's own story - an unapologetic and darkly funny account of a career as a globe-conquering investment banker spanning New York, London, and Hong Kong. Straight to Hell pulls back the curtain on a world that is both hated and envied, taking readers from the trading floors and roadshows to private planes and after-hours overindulgence. Full of shocking lawlessness, boyish antics, and win-at-all-costs schemes, this is the definitive take on the deviant, dysfunctional, and absolutely excessive world of finance.

This book is going to annoy and offend a lot of people, with good reason. * Euromoney.com * Details midday cocaine binges, dodgy deals and epic booze benders that make movie The Wolf Of Wall Street look like a poodle. * The Sun * [A] sleazy catalogue of vice. * Wall Street Journal * His story reads like a frat boy's fever dream of the high-flying life: morning drinking, late-night drinking, and drinking all the hours in between. * Publishers Weekly * LeFevre is a pretty loathsome human being. * The Times * Makes the Wolf of Wall St look like a pussycat. * Daily Mail *
