Overview

In one word: egregious.

Damn It Feels Good to Be a Banker is a Wall Street epic, a war cry for the masses of young professionals behind desks at Investment Banks, Hedge Funds, and Private Equity shops around the world. With chapters like "No. We do not have any 'hot stock tips' for you," "Mergers are a girl's best friend," and "Georgetown I wouldn't let my maids' kids go there," the book captures the true essence of being in high finance.

DIFGTBAB thematically walks through Wall Street culture, pointing out its intricacies: the bushleagueness of a Men's Warehouse suit or squared-toe shoes, the power of 80s pop, and the importance of Microsoft Excel shortcut keys as related to ever being able to have any significant global impact.

The book features various, vivid illustrations of Bankers in their natural state (ballin'), and, in true Book 2.0 fashion, numerous, insightful comments from actual readers of the widely popular website LeveragedSellOut.com.

Thorough and well-executed, it's lens into the heart of an often misunderstood, unfairly stereotyped subset of our society. The view—breathtaking.

This guy pretty much bashes an industry his "friends" were in and thinks it's funny. I think that alone speaks for his character. I see a lonely guy trying to fit in all his life who used this outlet to get some sort of revenge or lash out for not getting his dream investment banking job. He couldn't deal with all the rejections he got from girls and job interviews so he turned around and TRIED to make a living ruining other people's lives and bashing their jobs. for which they worked very hard for. Way to live miserably and prove it. Good job buddy I'm sure your parents are proud  - this is what you do with your life after everything they have sacrificed for you.
