Description du produit

Revue de presse

“Bracing…calls to mind books like Bright Lights, Big City by Jay McInerney, and especially Liar’s Poker by Michael Lewis…As spectacle [the book] easily trumps both…Mr. Duff proves a fine wordsmith: his prose is smooth, lean and rhythmic…An entertaining and cautionary tale, well worth your time.”
-Bryan Burrough, The New York Times 

 “A heavyweight confessional about the perils of a life spent chasing the almighty dollar…even though the author’s brutal honesty about his increasingly chaotic personal life is commendable, it’s really more his vivid portrait of the everyday inner workings of life at a hedge fund that fascinates…A fast-paced memoir of the easy-money hypercapitalist dream-turned- nightmare.”
--Kirkus Reviews

 “Looking for a Hollywood-worthy account of Wall Street with lots of juicy details about the high life? Duff, a former financial trader who climbed the ranks at several major firms, provides a fascinating glimpse into the trader’s life as he narrates his journey from smalltown boyhood in Kennebunk, Maine, to hitting the jackpot in Manhattan, to succumbing to the poisons of success…[This] fast-paced tale will absorb readers…a wild ride.”
--Publishers Weekly

“This
is why I keep my money safe and sound under the mattress. You could get high just reading this book. Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Wall Street traders."
 --James Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls

“Turney Duff is a natural storyteller, and his tale of how a naive kid from Maine traded in L.L. Bean for Armani and got sucked into the seamy side of Wall Street is almost impossible to put down. The book is by turns hilarious, harrowing, maddening, and illuminating. After this debut, the smart money will be on Duff.”
--Bethany McLean, New York Times bestselling author of The Smartest Guys in the Room and All the Devils Are Here

“Turney Duff’s The Buy Side picks up where the Academy Award-winning film about systemic corruption on Wall Street, 'Inside Job', leaves off.  Duff, who at one time was the promising rookie on the trading desk at troubled hedge fund Galleon, gives us a front-row seat to the Street’s dark side – but the tale also features a personal story that will have you cheering as Duff fights his way through a jungle of excess and figures out what really matters. To all those who want to rule the market not just during business hours but after hours, beware -- you may not have Duff’s survival skills.”
--Lawrence G. McDonald, New York Times bestselling author of A Colossal Failure of Common Sense
 
The Buy Side takes the reader on an extremely wild ride so eloquently and honestly that we never want it to end.  Cocaine wants everything you love and everything that loves you.  Turney Duff had everything and nothing while trading billions of dollars on a razor's edge. His book takes you from Wall Street to Skid Row to the Thompson Hotel – and then, mercifully, back to sanity and finding a place in the world. Hang on, The Buy Side is gonna move you around, and there are no seatbelts to keep you from getting hit hard.”
--Brian O’Dea, author of High: Confessions of an International Drug Smuggler

The Buy Side is ‘Wall Street’ meets ‘Breaking Bad’ – except that this book is fact not fiction.
Turney Duff yields to temptation at every turn, and the sheer volume of criminal behavior he saw, and even participated in, is astonishing…If you want to see Wall Street’s seamy underbelly firsthand, read this book.”
--Frank Partnoy, bestselling author of F.I.A.S.C.O and Infectious Greed
 
"If you took Gordon Gekko, Bud Fox, a copy of Bright Lights, Big City, and threw them in a blender with an ounce of cocaine, a bottle of Patron Tequila, and your favorite teddy bear you'd have yourself a Buy Side smoothie. Turney's my kind of guy; a madman with heart.  I couldn't put the book down."
--Colin Broderick, author of Orangutan
 
“Does Wall Street make people crazy or are crazy people simply attracted to Wall Street?  The Buy Side doesn’t get us any closer to answering that question, but along the way we get a look inside perhaps the most ethically-challenged investment firm in recent memory, and a harrowing journey through drug addiction and recovery.  This is not a musical comedy; at the end, you’re just relieved that Duff is alive.”
--Jared Dillian, author of Street Freak: Money and Madness at Lehman Brothers
 
“Turney Duff's The Buy Side is the perfect parable for Wall Street's lost decade. Duff’s account of his rise and fall has it all, from a fast-paced coke-crazed trip through Manhattan nightlife that conjures Bright Lights, Big City, to an eyewitness account of insider trading and front running that reads like a federal indictment. Broke but not broken, Duff ends up better than others on Wall Street have--sober, chastened, and lucky to be alive after the self-destructive excesses of easy money and empty ambition.”
-Guy Lawson, New York Times bestselling author of Octopus




From the Hardcover edition.

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Buy Side is Turney Duff's high-adrenaline journey through the trading underworld, as well as a searing look at an after-hours Wall Street culture where sex and drugs are the quid pro quo and a billion isn't enough.

In the mid-2000's, Turney Duff was, to all appearances, the very picture of American success. One of Wall Street's hottest traders, he was a rising star with Raj Rajaratnam's legendary Galleon Group before forging his own path. What few knew was that the key to Turney's remarkable success wasn't a super-genius IQ or family connections but rather a winning personality - because the real money wasn't made on the trading floor or behind a computer screen, but in whispered deals in the city's most exclusive nightspots, surrounded by the best drugs and hottest women. For Turney, this created a perilously seductive cycle: the harder he partied, the more connected and successful he became, which meant he could party even harder. In time, he became a walking paradox, an addictive mess after hours, and King of the Street from nine to five. Along the way, he learned some important lessons about himself, and the too-wild-to-believe world of Wall Street trading.

In The Buy Side, the money is plentiful and the after-hours indulgence even more so, which has proved to be a bestselling and box office winning combination, as the success of The Wolf of Wall Street attests. Fans of Martin Scorsese's film and Michael Lewis's Liar's Poker and The Big Short will want to take a walk on The Buy Side.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent insight into the dark side of hedge funds and trading 28 novembre 2016
Par Angie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Fascinating story. this is a well written book offering excellent insights into the dark side of hedge fund traders and Wall Streeet. As a former equity salesperson, I used to observe the crazy and immature antics of the (mostly male) traders on the trading floor and often wondered what happened to them. I'm sorry those wild parties expensed as 'client entertainment' facilitated your addiction. Turney, thank you for sharing this painful story with such honesty and candor. It was interesting to learn how hedge funds generate fake trades to boost their commission base with brokers. Most importantly, if your book motivates brokerage firms and their clients to examine their entertainment practices -- you will have accomplished more than anyone. Thank you.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Bro makes money, crushes it... things go south so he pretends to be have learned profound lesson 13 mai 2017
Par Michael - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Reads like an episode of TMZ... supposed to be the story of a contrite former buy side desk member, one who lived the life of excess and came away a better man.... blah blah blah.... he might occasionally say he's sorry, or full of regret, or wishes he could change things.... but these are empty statements from a person who loves to hear himself speak and only truly laments the fact that things turned ugly in the end. Wrapped between these empty regrets is frat boy type boasting and an entitled dirtbag's recollection of "living the dream". The instances of self reflection and regret come out as incredibly hollow, and worse still: calculated. A ploy to make him likable and vulnerable. Nothing genuine about him, these revelations and confessions of sorrow/disappointment in himself gave me the impression that it was the work of a talented manipulator saying/writing things that he thought would make him look evolved and self aware, as opposed to brutal honest and genuine expression. Given that the book is entirely about him, and he's "the hero", it's hard to enjoy something when you dislike the protagonist and stop rooting for his happy ending.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 loved this book on many levels 22 novembre 2016

loved this book. It is the amazing story of an enneagram 7 who is deeply honest, I found myself laughing out loud so much that my dog looked at me with that "what's so funny expression" which is pure delight. Duff is brutally honest, and his path is of interest beyond the stock market (although excellent coverage of a man who lived it) but is the story of a human beings spiritual journey of growth, the kind that comes from real pain and hard work. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys intelligence, wit, and humor. This book is not superficial, I really couldn't put it down!!!

You don't need to know anything about the market or hedge funds to read and understand the author's story. He write it in a way that you can understand and actually learn what was going on in the markets. You'll hear about his childhood and how he came to be a trader on the buy side. You'll hear his stories of wild excesses. You'll hear of the birth of his daughter and how his addiction to cocaine and alcohol lead him to 2 stints at rehab. All of this to come to his true passion of writing. The book is well done, entertaining and educational.

I really like this fast read with great info. The first 39% covers how a non Ivy graduate with meager talent ends up low level Wall Street and eventually on the "buy" side at hedge funds: and these are real player hedge funds which you now see on the front page of the WSJ. This is the best part, fast furious and informative. Now, it will make you wonder why you invest with all the shenanigans being pulled. From there he follows a mentor from a poor work environment to new glamour as a real trader with power to make brokers wealthy. And for this chance the brokers party and buy drugs. Too much drugs as he eventually is hooked and work suffers. All this happens as he falls in love and has a baby. The last part of the book is a drug story. Some funny, some sad. But not as exciting as the first 39%. I recommend the book for a story of the good and bad on Wall Street. Just be prepared for the drug story also.
