Overview

"How the Trading Floor Really Works is an invaluable resource for current MBAs, recent graduates and experienced financial market participants alike. For the novice about to join the trading floor ranks, it provides a base framework for understanding the world they are entering. For the investment banker, investor, portfolio manager or other financial expert who doesn't work on the trading floor, it demystifies the "black box" of the trading floor in an entertaining yet informative way."
Dr. Susan S. Fleming, Senior Lecturer, Johnson Graduate School of Management/School of Hotel Administration, Cornell University/Former Partner, Capital Z Partners, L.P.

"Written in a lively and digestible style, this clear and cogent book covers much more than the title suggests. In fact the book lays out much of the banking industry's critical role in financial markets; the basic differences between various classes of financial instruments; and how trading businesses interact with other parts of a large complex financial institution. Not only for students and post-grads interested in financial markets, this book would be a great primer for anyone entering or working in a related field, such as clients, journalists, regulators, consultants and policy-makers. The vignettes and examples the author uses bring relevance and humour to this technical subject, as well as capturing the trading floor environment."
Betsy Gile, Board Member, Deutsche Bank Trust Corporation/Board Member, Keycorp

"An easy and enjoyable read – even for somebody who has been on a trading floor for over 20 years. I learnt a lot reading it. It has the balance of expertise written in an easy style with real examples – a valuable book for market professionals and also participants"
—Addy Loudiadis
