Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

His story reads like a frat boy's fever dream of the high-flying life: morning drinking, late-night drinking, and drinking all the hours in between; pranks, bar fights, cheating, travel, and prostitutes... Equal parts fun and train wreck, this is a tale engineered to astonish anyone who wondered which fools were behind the crash of 2008; few could have pictured how absurd the truth really was. --Publishers Weekly

This book is going to annoy and offend a lot of people, with good reason. It is a vicious, vacuous, caustic world he illuminates. But it would be a shameful waste if we didn't have Lefevre to find the humour in it all. --Euromoney.com

Présentation de l'éditeur

“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 readers 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.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A recycled version of Liar's Poker meets Wolf of Wall Street 20 juillet 2015
Par IrishCL - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Here's a quick summary chapter by chapter: Boring story about a deal. Story about excessively spending money on booze, meals and hotels. Boring story about a deal and perhaps a prank played on a co-worker. Story about waking up hungover. Repeat.

The author said in an interview that the Wolf of Wall Street was just a bunch of community college dropouts who partied and committed crimes. I don't see much honor in being a top 25 college grad who parties and scams people.

Publishing houses, much like Hollywood, are running out of ideas and recycling the same old tired story.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Repetitive "day drinking" stories that seem like they are written by a teenager 24 juillet 2015

Disappointing read. Repetitive "day drinking" stories that seem like they are written by a teenager. The Authors smug tone throughout the book was annoying.
My favourite part was reading the tweets in between the chapters. They were great!

Previous to this book I read "The Buy Side" by Turney Duff which was outstanding ...maybe that's why I found this such a bad read?

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Insane corruption. Very entertaining also. 19 août 2015
Par Blue Icebreaker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
4 1/2 stars. This book is great entertainment. It provides you with a rare opportunity to see the world of elite-level banking. The stories of deviance and debauchery are interesting. The persons involved are depicted in a very realistic and above all funny way. But this can be considered mere fun and trivia. As the author said in an interview, the real outrage comes from seeing how the bankers do business: they are all utterly corrupt.

I have recently read Ice-T's autobiography. There is a revealing quote in it:

"One thing I've learned from straddling two worlds: Hollywood is way more gangster than the streets. It comes down to this. The higher you go up the mountain, the colder it gets. I’ve been around some of the most ruthless gangsters in the streets of South Central L.A., but I’ve never seen anything like Hollywood’s gangsterism. When cats are dealing with billions of dollars, anybody—I mean, anybody—is expendable."

Now imagine that multiplied by a billion. The world of banking is corrupt to the bone. The difference is that the 'collateral damage' are whole states, millions of people who aren't even aware why the system works the way it does and why the bailouts always cost the common man and not the bankers themselves.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Boring. Stories seem to be all the same 7 août 2015
Par Holly - Publié sur Amazon.com
Boring. Stories seem to be all the same. Maybe I am numb, but none of this was shocking. It sounds like typical college partying and pranks but on a larger budget. Reconfirms that the assumptions we all make about Wall Street are true.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 LeFevre steals your money. 31 août 2015
Par Law_Guy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
LeFevre merely road the coattails of other authors writing about their times in the banking industry. He simply spills out bloated stories in a disjointed manner. There are times when rather than change a name of a person or department, he decided to just redact the entire word - I mean, how freaking lazy can you be!

Go read Liar's Poker or The Buy Side instead - they both actually describe the lifestyle while mixing in funny stories and the authors of both are decent writers, unlike LeFevre.
