Bombardiersby Po Bronson
This hilarious, electrifying novel does for money what Catch-22 did for war. An entertaining depiction of greed & dishonesty on Wall Street, it portrays the craziness of investment banking in its money-junkie phase. The novel is a vicious, hilarious satire of bond traders & by extension, the prevailing mindset of corporate America.
“A hilarious must read for anyone with a brokerage account or mutual fund.”
“The prose explodes with the force of a volcano, the dialogue is as flashy as a fireworks display, and the characters are as relentlessly driven as motorcycles on the wall of death.”
“Perhaps the most entertaining depiction of greed and dishonesty on Wall Street ever to see print...Bronson is a major talent, able to craft the kind of passages you reread just to revel in prose with a compelling cadence all its own.”
“The first thing you’ll want to do after reading Bombardiers...is to buy futures on Bronson’s career. This first novel is both funny and wise.”

I tell my friends not to read this in a public place, because you will embarrass yourself laughing. I give this book every year to new friends and co-workers. It says something about its enduring appeal that Po Bronson wrote it ten years ago, and it's still in print.
The last 20 pages or so were laugh out loud funny! Not a deep thinking novel, but entertaining nonetheless.
