Recensioner i media

Compelling, intensely readable, unsettling. An unforgettable story of greed, financial madness and moral decay. -- Rory Stewart An incredibly important and timely book, very much of its era. The Wolf of Wall Street with a moral compass, it lays bare the spiritual vacuity of the systems and processes that both dominate and reduce our humanity. -- Irvine Welsh Astonishing, enraging, extremely funny and exquisitely sad - a magnificent expos of the 'masters of the universe' whose greed imperils us all. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. -- The Secret Barrister The Trading Game is the best finance memoir Ive ever read. Gary Stevenson's tale of plundering Wall Street like some kind of cockney pirate is by turn hilarious and harrowing. A thrilling read that raises profound questions about who runs the global financial system. -- Zeke Faux, author of Number Go Up A well written and often darkly funny book that makes a convincing case that high finance is as toxic, reckless and deeply cynical as ever. * Guardian * The Trading Game is Stevensons account his confession of how he achieved this dream, becoming Citibanks most profitable trader, and how it made him angry, dejected and ill. There are parallels with Liars Poker by Michael Lewis, an autobiographical account of a young mans adventures in the financial markets This dark but profitable vision is lightened by moments of comic self-importance. * The Times * Stevenson is a sharp observer, with a gift for colourful if merciless description His breakdown started with trading mania and ended with his exile to the Tokyo office, pleading to be allowed to leave. His bonuses had brought him torment, not freedom. * Financial Times * For a self-proclaimed mathematics nerd, Stevenson is a fine wordsmith. His greatest strength is his ability to unravel complex concepts Stevenson candidly shares his traumas and experiences finance, for all its allure and excess, is a world where excess comes at a cost, a cost not measured in dollars but in the essence of who we become. * Daily Telegraph * As a critique of the monstrous modern evolutions of finance, Gary Stevensons account of the frenzy and follies of trading trillions a day on behalf of the US giant Citibank is powerful Rude and funny demotic fast-paced prose... he tells a vivid story and invites us to make our own judgement. * TLS * Gary Stevensons rags-to-riches memoir exposes a system where the rich cant lose and the economy is choked by inequality. Stevenson brings alive the unease of trying to survive in the purgatorial space between being an employee and an outsider * New Statesman *
