Publisher's Summary

A no-holds-barred, warts-and-all account of life in London's financial heartland. 'Who is Cityboy? He's every brash, suited, FT-carrying idiot who ever pushed past you on the tube. He's the egotistical buffoon who loudly brags about how much cash he's made on the market at otherwise pleasant dinner parties. He's the greedy, ruthless wanker whose actions are helping turn this world into the shit-hole it's rapidly becoming. For one period in my life, he was me.' In this no-holds-barred, warts-and-all account of life in London's financial heartland, Cityboy breaks the Square Mile's code of silence in his own inimitable style, revealing explosive secrets, tricks of the trade and the corrupt, murky underbelly at the heart of life in the city. Drawing on his experience as a young analyst in a major investment bank, the six-figure bonuses, monstrous egos, and the everyday culture of verbal and substance abuse that fuels the world's money markets is brutally exposed as Cityboy describes his ascent up the hierarchy of this intensely competitive and morally dubious industry, and how it almost cost him his sanity.

a remarkable story

I was tranfixed by this remarkable and blisteringly honest story about the banking industry. Grossly overpaid and incompetant sleezebags and scumbags at the controls of the banking industry with OTHER PEOPLE"S MONEY.

I noticed he jumped ship just before the banking bubble burst and I wish him well in his next career- because he has surely burned his bridges by his frankness....
