I just finished reading Liar's Poker. Its one of those books that I should have read years ago, but I just never got around to it. For the handful of folks who haven't read it, it is a true story of someone spending two years at Salomon Brothers in the 1980s. Its a great book, but reveals the rather ugly side of the investment banking world. I'd like to think things are all different now, 20 years later, but I seriously doubt it.
