The Buy Side: A Wall Street Trader's Tale of Spectacular Excess

Addiction. Readers who like memoirs of addiction and recovery are those most likely to enjoy Turney Duff’s The Buy Side: A Wall Street Trader’s Tale of Spectacular Excess. Those readers who expect any insight into Wall Street life should look elsewhere. In many respects, this is a generic story of addiction with Wall Street as a backdrop to a story of personal bad choices and the consequences of those choices. Duff landed a job on Wall Street and found a sweet spot in his skills at networking and partying. Drinking and drugs led to full addiction and bad outcomes for Turney and his family. I found this to be a sad story, but one that many other authors have told. Duff writes well, and if you enjoy reading about the pain and misfortune of others, this is the book for you. Rating: Three-star (It’s ok) Click here to purchase The Buy Side from amazon.com.
