    "Trade Secrets is a novel taking place in the late 80s at the Chicago mercantile exchange after the 87 crash. Follow the main character Remy as she infiltrates the Merc in order to learn more about her father's death. Although not set on Wall Street, Trade Secrets has a very similar feel given that it is set at the Chicago Merc. "

    "Have you ever had bad advice from a financial planner or lost money in the stock market? Then this book is for you. Black Fridays is a great dramatic novel set on Wall Street and follows Jason Stafford, who spent time in jail for a white collar crime. The book reminds me a lot of a Grisham novel, lots of twists and turns that keep you glued to the book. Some of the financial stuff might be over an average reader's head, but the story is good enough that you'll enjoy it."

    "I have read this novella many times and I always get a good laugh out of it. Told from the perspective of the lawyer as he describes the scriveners who work for him, I always get a laugh at how odd and aloof Bartleby is."

    "The Gods of Greenwich is one of the better Wall Street centered books I've read. It's refreshing to read an author with true expertise in his field, but also the ability to weave that knowledge into an engaging and exciting story. A great read!"

    "Pretty good to get a book based on a different side of wall street. More on the relationship and personal side so it's a different twist. "
