Publisher's Summary

"Some chick asked me what I would do with 10 million bucks. I told her I'd wonder where the rest of my money went." (@GSElevator)
Over the past three years, the notorious @GSElevator Twitter feed has offered a hilarious, shamelessly voyeuristic look into the real world of international finance. Hundreds of thousands followed the account, Goldman Sachs launched an internal investigation, and when the true identity of the man behind it all was revealed, it created a national media sensation - but that's only part of the story.
Where @GSElevator captured the essence of the banking elite with curated jokes and submissions overheard by readers, Straight to Hell adds John LeFevre's own story - an unapologetic and darkly funny account of a career as a globe-conquering investment banker spanning New York, London, and Hong Kong. Straight to Hell pulls back the curtain on a world that is both hated and envied, taking listeners from the trading floors and roadshows to private planes and after-hours overindulgence. Full of shocking lawlessness, boyish antics, and win-at-all-costs schemes, this is the definitive take on the deviant, dysfunctional, and absolutely excessive world of finance.

Love it!!!

Fabulous book!! I work in public accounting and have investment banker friends as well - so this book made a lot of sense. Honest and hilarious with small patches of compassion. If you work in the financial word and enjoy humor and wit, this is a perfect book. Even my husband, who is not in the finance industry, thoroughly enjoyed it!! Must read! The narrator reads it accordingly!

If you like the Twitter account you'll love this

I think the people that left negative reviews haven't read / followed the Twitter account. Definitely worth the time if you are looking for entertainment. Super funny and the narrator did a great job.
