The time was the 1980s. The place was Wall Street. The game was called Liar s Poker.
From the Publisher:
Michael Lewis was fresh out of Princeton and the London School of Economics when he landed a job at Salomon Brothers, one of Wall Street's premier investment firms. During the next three years, Lewis rose from callow trainee to bond salesman, raking in millions for the firm and cashing in on a modern-day gold rush. Liar's Poker is the culmination of those heady, frenzied years--a behind-the-scenes look at a unique and turbulent time in American business. From the frat-boy camaraderie of the forty-first-floor trading room to the killer instinct that made ambitious young men gamble everything on a high-stakes game of bluffing and deception, here is Michael Lewis's knowing and hilarious insider's account of an unprecedented era of greed, gluttony, and outrageous fortune.
Annotation:
In this thrilling account of the high-stakes world of Wall Street, Michael Lewis tells how, fresh out of college, he was hired by Salomon Brothers, a prestigious firm that was making a fortune in the bond market--only to be outdone by junk bond salesman Michael Milliken. Lewis presents a first-hand account of the education of a salesman, along with incisive, and sometimes disturbing, portraits of his contemporaries--many of whom failed to leave their college hijinx behind when they graduated.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"Most books about business are boring. A great exception [is] LIAR'S POKER, Michael Lewis's funny, knowing depiction of the monstrously giddy frat-guy world of investment banking." - Kurt Andersen 10/31/1999
