    Completely accurate - in fact a generous portrayal of a very corrupt and incometent group of individuals.

    Beware the folks who claim this book is innacurate..they are the ones seeking to hide the ridiculous reality that was the NYMEX during this period in time.

    Author has superior access and researched the book for many years.

    The Sopranos of Wall Street

    I found Ms.Goodman's book to be an excellent introduction into the world of trading - specifically the NYMEX oil market. As a novice to the Market, I found her book to be appealing and understandable to this layman. Since it is a work of nonfiction with names and situations delineated, the author would be hard pressed to fictionalize any of her story. The Sopranos do indeed exist as Wall Street traders!

    Complete Nonsense

    Seems that the author really wanted to be apart of the world she is condemning in the book. Accounts of activities are severely misconstrued or outright false. The sources the author uses seem to be just as bitter and jealous as the author.
