Synopsis

A candid, often outrageous portrait of life at a major Wall Street investment house rips the cover off high-finance, exposing the grueling work schedules and shocking abuses common in this high-octane lifestyle. Reprint.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

John Rolfe graduated from Virginia Tech, The University of Florida, and Wharton Business School. At Wharton, he was the editor of The Wharton Vulgarian. Following his sentence with DLJ, he spent several years working at a private investment fund. In 2001, he co-founded an equity-oriented money management firm, and today manages the firm from a top secret location deep in Vermont. He lives with his wife and two children, and is currently attempting to learn how to produce maple syrup.

Peter Troob graduated from Duke University and Harvard Business School. At Harvard, he was the humor editor for Harbus. After a gross error in judgment caused him to return to the investment banking world at DLJ, he left for the greener pastures of distressed debt investing at a private investment fund. In 2002 he co-founded a debt-oriented money management firm, which he continues to manage today. He lives with his wife and two children outside of New York City, where he can often be seen limping around the neighborhood and complaining about his bad knees.

Format: Taschenbuch
Before going into my review, let me start with a caution. This book is the grossest, most vulgar business book I have ever read . . . by a very wide margin. This book would have been banned in Boston 50 years ago. If that sort of thing offends you, this book is a minus ten stars. Many women will feel this book is anti-female. On the other hand, if you happen to like your humor male, bold and brassy, this book will be one of the funniest you will ever read.

As someone who often works with investment bankers, the descriptions about how business is sold and delivered should be tempered a bit. This book describes pretty much every investment banker as shoddy, shallow, and manipulative. That has not been my typical experience. There are terrifically smart, talented, ethical and humane investment bankers. For example, one of my favorites never used a pitch book during his first meeting with a client. Pitch book preparation is one of the banes of the young investment banker's existence. But like all professions, investment bankers vary a lot. There are certainly some less capable ones, and I have seen their work too. I would describe it much like the authors do.

In terms of the working conditions, they are mostly a reflection of weak management in the industry. Investment banks reward doing deals, not being good managers of the deals. A fellow I know became CEO of a major investment bank, and made much less money after that than when he was just a deal-maker. He found little interest on the part of his colleagues in improving management, so it was pretty frustrating. It just doesn't pay to work on making life better for the investment bankers in training, compared to producing more business.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Having had the pleasure of working with investment bankers from several firms recently, this person was looking forward to learning more about what these guys have to go through. Sure, the hours are tough and long, and the perks are even more tremendous than anyone could imagine. But go figure, to succeed in any high powered profession, there is a period of ungodly work hours required, and a true dedication to be successful. Go ask any physician, who has to work harder in the early parts of a career than any banker. The authors prove what anyone who has been through a successful career chase knows, to be able to persevere and be successful at something, you have to enjoy doing what you are doing. The system has a way of weeding out those who are only in it for the money, and it worked fine here. Rolfe and Troob are opposites in many respects, but brought together by a disdain for a career path they had chosen - and chosen only to get rich. Troob on the one hand, decides that life has more to offer than the commitment to a successful career in investment banking would allow. He comes across as decent, bright and able to be successful at lots of things. Misery loves company, and Rolfe is the loser who even after leaving DLJ can't make it in a job. He tells how he got in through good fortune, and appears to detest every thing he was doing. Now let me see, I get a job, but I can't stand the work, and I hate it, therefore the system must be terrible that this career that pays so well isn't fun for me. Jealous of those who are successful in a career where he doesn't belong, he tries to blame the system for creating the scumbag that he is, and take it down with him on his spiral to nowhere.Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Monkey Business is one of the most fun reads I ever enjoyed. It showcases just the right amount of sarkasm when picturing the newly minted MBAs dream of getting into I-Banking.

Kudos to the authors that did not hide behind generalizations but always used own (very specific) examples when describing experiences they made.

Sometimes the language used is a bit raw, but hey, that's just I-Bankers lingo, isn't it?

This book a good read for anyone thinking about going to a Business School, into Investment Banking. But also everybody else who wants to read a fun story should consider this book.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
required reading for anyone about to embark upon a career into investment banking, but first a caveat emptor: this book lays out the fundamentals about what it's like to be a young hot stud in an armani at a big name wall street firm, and it is basically a factual accounting of the co-authors' experience there, but it tends to veer off into the land of sophomoric hi-jinks and "south park" humor. read it quickly, for the writing is uneven, choppy, unenlightening; in fact, skim it like a "pitch book" or "prospectus" that rookie investment bankers slave over during 100-hour work weeks, and to their disappointment, find their clients--and everyone else-- basically ignoring. bottom line: you can make buckets of money as an investment banker, but forgot about saving your soul in the process. certainly, this book is nowhere near the same caliber as those written by po bronson or michael lewis, but there will be definitely be a market of buyers for monkey business in this topsy turvy economy of ours.
