it was amazing

This is an entertaining look into the life of post-mba investment banking associates. this book will discourage most people that value some sort of social life from attempting to enter this field despite the outrageous salary packages. I was pretty amused at some of the bawdy aspects of these bankers lives and how they attempt to cope with the long hours (such as trips to strip clubs in the middle of the night). it definitely has demystified and exposed a field which is often painted as glamorous. i was surprised as to the amount of prepackaged baloney that went into the creation of proposals, presentations, and prospectuses. i was also surprised at the sheer amount of financial manipulation that investment bankers use in painting new offerings in a positive light.
