Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Roose's book is like a 21st-century Der Struwwelpeter, a cautionary tale for the young and gifted (Daily Mail)

An excellent book . . . asks a serious and important question: is this really the best use we can make of our brightest young people, to turn them into conformist drones who will mock anyone who turns up at the office in slightly too colourful a tie (Irish Daily Mail)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Becoming a young Wall Street banker is like pledging the world's most lucrative and soul-crushing fraternity. Every year, thousands of eager college graduates are hired by the world's financial giants, where they're taught the secrets of making obscene amounts of money-- as well as how to dress, talk, date, drink, and schmooze like real financiers.

Inside the Hidden World of Wall Street's Post-Crash Recruits

YOUNG MONEY is the inside story of this well-guarded world. Kevin Roose, New York magazine business writer and author of the critically acclaimed The Unlikely Disciple, spent more than three years shadowing eight entry-level workers at Goldman Sachs, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and other leading investment firms. Roose chronicled their triumphs and disappointments, their million-dollar trades and runaway Excel spreadsheets, and got an unprecedented (and unauthorized) glimpse of the financial world's initiation process.

Roose's young bankers are exposed to the exhausting workloads, huge bonuses, and recreational drugs that have always characterized Wall Street life. But they experience something new, too: an industry forever changed by the massive financial collapse of 2008. And as they get their Wall Street educations, they face hard questions about morality, prestige, and the value of their work.

YOUNG MONEY is more than an exposé of excess; it's the story of how the financial crisis changed a generation-and remade Wall Street from the bottom up.

HASH(0x99218204) étoiles sur 5 too preachy 28 février 2014
Par Ole Jastrau - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I read this book because I've long had a macabre fascination with the junior analysts and the banking "lifestyle" (which seems to mean the lifestyle of people just starting out after college who live in apartment shares and piss away all their money trying to make girls at clubs think they're rich). I work in financial services, but I came to finance later in my career. I've never worked in a bank, so I don't know what it's like, but my colleagues who have didn't have an experience resembling this.

The book is amusing in parts and a quick, easy read. My main objection to the book is that it doesn't feel serious. It comes off mainly as an excuse for Roose to do "research" by spending a few years partying and going out for dinner with his college buddies. Then at the end of it all, he can write a cautionary book of amateur sociology.

Roose's most interesting observation is not new: smart and talented but risk-averse college students go into banking after they graduate because it's an easy way to continue the achievement oriented lives they're used to, and because it saves them any hard thinking about what the heck to do for a career. The descriptions of the lives of first- and second-year analysts are entertaining, and the subjects are likable. At some point Roose even decides his college buddies are too likable, so he goes out of his way to attend the Fashion Meets Finance party so he can report back that in fact, yes, all the people he hasn't met are awful. And that's the key problem with the book: it seems like he's working hard mostly to reinforce all the prejudices he started with.

Roose's main agenda is convincing us that everyone who stays in banking is, or eventually becomes, an amoral psychopath (and the natural corollary is that college grads should go work at Facebook or a startup instead). Senior people appear in his book only as caricatures: they behave reprehensibly, showing up only to say something truly despicable or utterly tone deaf. Roose claims he couldn't get a single relatively senior person on Wall Street to talk to him about what it's like to work there, but it's hard to believe he tried very hard: after all, his sources are all anonymized. So he instead crashes Kappa Beta Phi, and tells us that every plutocrat is just like the people there, although some might be better at hiding it.

A lot of books have been written since the financial crisis that purport to tell us what is broken on Wall Street. Many of them do a better job than Young Money showing us what has gone wrong. I wish Roose had spent less time sermonizing and judging his friends' choices, and focused more on telling us what their lives are truly like and why.

HASH(0x992184d4) étoiles sur 5 Incredible Book (Edited) 18 février 2014
Par SN2013 - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book offers incredible insight into the lure of Wall Street for young professionals and explains the reasons for why despite all the bad publicity that Wall Street has gotten in the past couple of years, smart young people are still flocking to financial jobs.


- Quick read. Written by a journalist, the language is very accessible and enjoyable.

- No stereotypical traps or cliches. More often than not, Wall Street books are riddled with cliche's and contain information that has already been widely reported and offers nothing insightful to a reader.

- The subjects of the book are diverse! This is the book's biggest plus point. The author focuses on 8 different young professionals who he interviewed over the past 3 years. And for a change, they actually represent a good cross-section of society- different races, women, socio-economic backgrounds etc..

- The banks and divisions focused on are also diverse. The book examines different banks and their different sub-divisions, which is good for those who may want to learn about the workings of the financial industry.

- It can be difficult to write a non-fiction book without strong opinions about your subject. Few authors manage to avoid that trap, and Kevin Roose luckily happens to be one of them. He humanizes his subjects without passing too much judgement either way. I found myself invested in the people he was describing and caring about their narrative without any unnecessary intrusions from the author's own thoughts.

Cons (Edited):

- Almost None! This book is like a sociological study on finance today and young finance professionals that for once does not paint 22 year olds as greedy sociopaths, but instead more accurately portrays them as 20-something bright, passionate, somewhat confused and lost, college students who are trying to navigate the system to the best of their abilities.

- Upon re-evaluation of the book, I do have to say that the one con I can think of is that somehow the book lacks the requisite gravitas to be taken seriously in a way that would cement it's status in this genre (e.g. Liar's Poker, Too Big To Fail). It is obviously a well-written, well-researched and well put together book but it lacks that certain element that would have elevated it to the top of the list in this field. Having said that, I still think it is a very informative book that does full justice to its subjects and genre, and I can't think of similar books on this topic.

HASH(0x99218498) étoiles sur 5 "If money is not your main concern, you should leave." 18 février 2014
Par takingadayoff - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Ten years ago, "investment banker" was TV sitcom shorthand for extremely date-able. Today, apprentice investment bankers pretend to be lawyers or consultants, rather like American overseas tourists slapping Canadian flags on their suitcases during the Iraq war.

It's time for an update of the Liar's Poker confessional that Michael Lewis made popular and others followed. Until now, no one's written about what it's like to be an investment banker after the Great Recession. Kevin Roose, barely out of college himself, stepped up and interviewed a batch of new investment firm trainees and tells their stories.

Roose profiles a cross-section of students and recent graduates -- some had their sights on finance careers and others, some had other plans, or no plans. He follows them into the artificially hectic and stressful atmosphere of the first two years at a big investment firm. Long hours and impossible assignments keep them stressed even as they can see the deliberate futility of their tasks. It's tradition to make life hell for the newbies. It weeds out the sissies and toughens the rest up. At least that's the theory.

The new kids keep their eyes on the goal, which is a secure career in a prestigious (well, formerly prestigious) field, but mostly the big paycheck. Their mentors and advisers keep reminding them that it's all about the money. "We're not here to save the world. We exist to make money." "You know, helping the world is great and all, but you need to be motivated by money." "You know, if money is not your main concern here, you should leave."

It's a gripping narrative, and Roose isn't completely journalistically balanced, but he realizes where he's likely to be biased and tries to be as objective as possible.

He also cites some excellent books about the topic of the culture of Wall Street. In addition to Michael Lewis's books on the subject, he mentions Karen Ho's Liquidated: An Ethnography of Wall Street (a John Hope Franklin Center Book) and Melissa Fisher's Wall Street Women. I would also add Caitlin Zaloom's excellent Out of the Pits: Traders and Technology from Chicago to London, an ethnography of the Chicago Board of Trade and the London Stock Exchange.

(Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for a review copy.)

HASH(0x99218a74) étoiles sur 5 Eye-opening and well-written, a must read for anyone who works with young professionals in the banking/financial services field 24 février 2014

I loved Kevin Roose's first book, "The Unlikely Disciple" because he was able to explore an area I knew nothing about (evangelical college students) in an informative and non-degrading way. Roose has done the same with "Young Money." I am a non-profit fundraiser that works with young professional donors, many of whom work in the financial service companies that Roose's subjects also work at. His journalistic yet human interest style of writing made the book a must-read and explained so much about the way my donors live and act. The stories he tell are relatable yet unrelatable at the same time and despite their exorbitant paychecks, you see the human side of banking in a way I hadn't expected. I read the Kindle version of this book on a long flight and am so glad I did. I recommend it to anyone who wants to go into finance or works with young professionals in finance. It was anthropological and captivating and made me very happy to work in the nonprofit sector, even if I'm not always sure I can make rent at the end of the month.

HASH(0x99218828) étoiles sur 5 A Different Side of Wall Street 22 février 2014
Par C.L. Maven - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The Wall Street "villains" often portrayed in the news are corporate big-whigs preying on the unsophisticated, and this image has pervaded into our perception of Wall Street. In conjuring a villain whenever we hear the syllables "Wall Street," we end up overgeneralizing the faces of Wall Street. Roose's book is interesting in that it shows us the lives of junior analysts on Wall Street. I myself know little about the junior analysts other than that they are often overworked, but I feel little sympathy for them because these are supposed to be intelligent people who are being handsomely compensated. But we can forget that these are just students, in a sense children, who have for their entire life been climbing the ladder -- do well in high school to get into a good college, do well in college to get a good job, get a good and stable job to support a family. That ladder is not so linear come junior year of college when students have to decide on a path for post-graduation. One of the allures of Wall Street is its historically linear path to success. Roose sheds light on the thinking (or lack of thinking) when students pick a career path. Finance, with its lure of money, 2 years of grunt work, followed by 2 years of slightly less grunt work, then 2 years of MBA before hitting cruising altitude, seems like a very safe bet. We see the development of 8 junior analysts throughout Roose's book. The large differences in these people's backgrounds and outcomes adds some color to the life of Wall Street. True there are many people on Wall Street who are there for one purpose and one purpose only -- to make money. But it is also true that most incoming students to top universities do not have ibanking as a career choice, yet they flock to Wall Street in droves. Why is this? And what becomes of these people? "Young Money" does not provide all the answers, but can help us understand some of the complexities.

The book is organized into a number of very short chapters, making it a relatively easy read. Eight subjects isn't too numerous to follow and Roose does an overall good job of reminding us who is who in each chapter. Writing is obviously journalistic/sensational. It is an attempt to mimic Michael Lewis's style. This style works for me, and I ended up reading this book in 2 sittings in 1 day. If you enjoy Michael Lewis's works, you will probably enjoy this book.
