    Got boring about half way through - did not finish. Talks about activities on a derivatives/structured products desk. Michael Lewis and Scott Skyrm write better. Won't discount my rating on it too much because there is a real lack of good books on this kind of subject

    One again, the author exposes the basic human wiring of dreams, hope, fear, vulnerabilities, traits, animal spirit and more....our eternal chase of wants beyond need, all played with increasing deferral to conscious; our failure to listen to, architect and enjoy a life of serene joy assisted by the wisdom of conscious and unsullied soul. It might help to realise that, so long as we are alive, we will have to deal with our memories...despite the respite of death in the long run as Keynes famously said.

    Good exposure of the total amorality and ruthless exploitation of their customers as practised in "investment banks". A good antidote to anyone thinking of having business dealings with these monsters.A very easy and entertaining read but leaves you feeling soiled at the end. Just from being exposed to the way these people think: <he punched his fist into air> "I just ripped my customer's face off". (ie ripped someone off and preferably destroyed them).Recommended by Charlie Munger by the way.

    Frank's story of his life as a derivatives salesman is a light and fun read. The most informative aspect is his insight into the culture of his ex-employers, Morgan Stanley & Co. and Credit Suisse First Boston. One chapter about creating an MBS derivative for Japan was fantastic and very informative. As a whole, the book made me anxious to get a job on a derivatives desk.

    Well written and hard to put away. I understood derivatives before I read FIASCO. But knowing how it all started definitely makes it lot more interesting.

    Read the updated version...was disappointed there was no mention of the Japanese institution's corrupt trade
