Praise for The Practical Guide to Wall Street

"An extraordinary accomplishment. This clear, well-written, and insightful book is an indispensable resource for any new entrant to the business and an enormously useful reference for more experienced practitioners as well. Books on finance come and go, this one will stay the course."
—Sam Kellie-Smith, Managing Director, Global Head of Equity and Equity Derivative Trading, Morgan Stanley

"The Practical Guide to Wall Street is an excellent introduction to the wide range of products traded in an equities business today. I'd enthusiastically recommend it to any new hire in the sales or trading business."
—Simon Yates, Managing Director, Global Head of Equity Derivatives and Co-Head of European Securities, Credit Suisse

"Since 2002 I have been teaching MBA courses on equity markets and equity derivatives. Prior to that, I worked for eighteen years at Goldman Sachs in equity derivatives. Until now, I have never found a textbook that combines practical wisdom with academic rigor. Matthew Tagliani's book, The Practical Guide to Wall Street, provides that unique combination. I hope to use it in the classroom immediately."
—Mark Zurack, Professor and Visiting Lecturer, Columbia Business School and Johnson School of Management, Cornell University

"Mr. Tagliani has done what few have managed to do before—demystify the machinery of the financial industry in plain and accessible language. A hands-on introduction to what happens on the Street—if you are entering or thinking of joining the financial industry; or even if you simply want to understand what your next door neighbor does, this book is a must."
—Nikunj Kapadia, Associate Professor, Isenberg School of Management, University of Massachusetts Amherst

"This book will provide a great head start for?anyone considering joining an equities trading floor. It contains a wealth of detail and covers the issues that traders, salespeople, and their customers deal with on a day-to-day basis.? It spares the reader unnecessary technicalities and focuses on the points that matter to finance professionals."
—Sandy Rattray, Portfolio Manager, GLG Partners
