"Rigged" is the startling true story of David Russo, a rags-to-riches tale of a Brooklyn kid turned Harvard grad. He took on the old-world hierarchy and its powerful, monied kings, and set out to do the impossible--to build an energy exchange in the middle of the Arab world.
From the Publisher:

After conquering the hallowed halls of Harvard Business School, an Italian-American kid from the streets of Brooklyn decides to take on the testosterone-fueled Merc Exchange in lower Manhattan—where billions of dollars in oil money trade hands every week and where fistfights are known to break out on the trading floor.

Soon our hero is living the good life in the gold-lined hotel palaces of Dubai and on private yachts in Monte Carlo, teeming with half-naked girls flown in by Saudi sheikhs, and making deals in the dangerous back alleys of Beijing. But that's only the beginning. Taken under the wing of another young gun and partnering with a mysterious young Muslim, the kid embarks on a dangerous adventure to revolutionize the oil trading industry—and, along with it, the world.

This is a true story.

Annotation:
In this fast-moving, behind-the -scenes business memoir, Ben Mezrich traces his meteoric rise, which began at Harvard Business School, continued in the high-pressure world of New York's mercantile exchange, and which soon brought him to major cities of the new global economy, including Dubai and Beijing. Mezrich tells how deals are really made, and how the rock star lifestyle combines with the high-stakes, and sometimes very danger-filled, world of high finance and risk.
