It was just okay.

I did not expect the main topic of the book being Nick's relationship with family. I expected more about Wall Street happenings.

    An extraordinarily "shallow" work.   His characters were very shallow as well as were the development of the characters.

    It is possible that Douglas Brunt could become a decent writer but he has some work to do to get there.

    I really wanted to like this book

    Like other reviewers I thought this story was going to be an in depth look at the stock exchange and a story set around that. I kept waiting for the plot to thicken and before long I was three quarters of the way through and was still waiting. While I liked the style of easy read from Brunt I think this story missed the mark. I really wanted to like this book as I am a big fan of Megyn (his wife) and that was why I purchased the book. I really would like to read his next book in hopes that the next story is more developed and plot is there. Also, I read the authors notes and I did get the lesson in the book...but wanted more of an in depth story and character development.....but maybe that is just me. Hope the next one is better.

    Disappointed

    Just not what I expected - more of a character study than a story about living through the financial crisis.
