This book is funny. This guy was a nut. The Wall Street version of the Jerky Boys. Quite entertaining. The reader is excellent, great tones and voice changes.

I love the stock market. I love books about people who made it from the bottom and did well in business. But sorry to say that this book is just plain depressing. Real life story of a kid from NY that got sucked into the crack rock lifestyle of chop houses and made a ton of money ripping people off. He lied and cheated everyone in his life and I still felt bad for the guy in the end. When it finally ended I just felt sad.
Great narrator, good documentary style writing and a cool interview with the author at the end. Those redeeming qualities give it 3 stars. 2 1/2 would be more acurate.

The lead charachter Louis creates a love hate relationship with the reader. He starts from humble origins and makes is big as a crook on the dark side of wall st. The insights he provides make for an unputdownale read and give you and understanding of the types that people let manage their money. Worth the investment of time and money - a thoroughly recommended rollercoaster ide worth taking.
