From Library Journal

As described by Lewis, liar's poker is a game played in idle moments by workers on Wall Street, the objective of which is to reward trickery and deceit. With this as a metaphor, Lewis describes his four years with the Wall Street firm Salomon Brothers, from his bizarre hiring through the training program to his years as a successful bond trader. Lewis illustrates how economic decisions made at the national level changed securities markets and made bonds the most lucrative game on the Street. His description of the firm's personalities and of the events from 1984 through the crash of October 1987 are vivid and memorable. Readers of Tom Wolfe's The Bonfire of the Vanities ( LJ 11/15/87) are likely to enjoy this personal memoir. BOMC and Fortune Book Club selection.

Lewis takes the reader through his schoolboy's progress as trainee and geek in the trading room, to high-powered swashbuckler. The author has a puckish appreciation for the comic. Yet he also has the knack of explaining precisely how complex deals really work. He provides the most readable explanation I've seen anywhere of the origin within Salomon Brothers of the mortgage-backed securities market....It is good history, and a good story. "

As an analyst on Wall Street (yes, I do make a lot of copies) I must confess this was insightful reading even for me. If you want to work on Wall Street or you want to know what your broker really thinks of you, read this book. But to update the epilogue a bit, I temped at Salomon in 7 World Trade while waiting for my current job to begin. Much has changed. Real efforts have been made to combat the sexism in the system, though far more than mere vestiges remain. Each morning in the final months of the merger with Smith Barney pink slips were handed out and the process was very judiciously calculated. The pall of this book hung over each lay off. So be assured, if you have not read Liar's Poker, you are not culturally literate on Wall Street.
One final word: The Market is Efficient! Only the investment banks made money on the buyouts of the 80s. With Liar's Poker in one hand and A Random Walk Down Wall Street in the other, you'll have the basic insights to manage your relationship with both your broker and the market.

4.0 von 5 Sternen sehr zu empfehlen 17. April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Liefert gute Einsichten in die Welt des Bondhandels in den 80-er Jahren. Einiges davon ist heute noch existent, manches schon überholt. Sprache teilweise fachspezifisch, aber gut verständlich.

4.0 von 5 Sternen How and when the mortgage market initiated 25. August 2008
More than ever there is meaning to this story. The author gives us an insider's view of the very first days of mortgage securitization. It is difficult not to be taken aback about how this market was originally designed to match the interests of the few who initiated it. At the time, the technical advance in the Fixed Income area of the S bros such that they could trick the Federal decision taker in whatever advantaged them. Only an insider could give such a microscopic description of greed and excess but also how financial innovation occurs to a young salesperson. And only an insider could point out the precise point when the decline started, up to the consequences we know now.
What is funny though is that figures will look quite modest to anyone familiar with finance today. I learned a lot reading this book which was given to me when I was a trainee in fixed income; however it really puts aside the genuine value added that financial industry has once striped of excesses, moral hazard.

Von Javier
After working for two years (going on my third before I graduate) in trading as an intern in college, I finally came around to read this wicked and funny book. It really gave me a new perspective on my experiences and an education on how the business evolved. Do not believe all you read- traders are more civilized nowadays. They don't swing phone handsets at trainees lke myself, nor they have food frenzies every Friday and are generally better educated and a bit more refined than what Lewis depicts them to be. However, this book really tells the insider's view of the trading world from spotting "Big Swingin Dicks" (and "Dickettes")to the trading floor culture to unwritten rules and codes that can make or break a new trainee. A very fast and enjoyable read recomended for all finance students and soon to be traders like myself.($$$$$$$$)

1.0 von 5 Sternen I was working at Salomon Brothers at the time... 24. Februar 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
... that Mr. Lewis describes, and worked for the fixed income trading desk, so I know for a fact most of his descriptions are pure fiction. As for the rest, he has taken three years of events, embellished and exaggerated them, and presented them as if they occurred in a single day, creating an image of out-of-control mayhem in the company.
Mr. Lewis is a mediocre writer at best, lacking in financial expertise, and interested solely in pulp gossips and self-promotion. If you wish to read an actually well-written book on Wall Street, read "Barbarians at the Gate", "Market Wizards" or "Money Machine" - skip this trash.

Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
He makes all of his books, which are based on true stories, sound like made up. Unbelievable! But super exciting and riveting. If you like to read about finance, banking and that sort of business, you will LOVE Michael Lewis' books!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great book from a Wall Street/City insider 28. Mai 2009
Von CK
An excellent book. One wonders sometimes if some of the things aren't perhaps just a little exaggerated... but they could just be completely true. Altogether, though, the gist is easy to get: Wall Street firms (at least in the 80s) were/are not well organized and are ruled by a culture of testosterone and risk-taking. No surprise really, but to see it in action can still be shocking and informative.
