Liar’s Poker

Generally, the book describes the "culture" of Wall Street at the time. It is totally unflattering and portrays Wall Street traders and salesmen as unscrupulous people who took advantage of others' ignorance. They have a lust for money and contempt for everybody else who doesn't make as much as they do (which is why Michael wanted the job in the first place!).
The book deals mainly with political and economical changes that has made the world a smaller place and levelling the playing field. The outsourcing bit to China and India is interesting, especially the Language neutralisation concept! Lost a bit of interest at the end due to my inability to stay focused. The author has spent time travelling the world to get very nice examples to motivate his point. I found these very interesting.
