Irony Is A Dish Best Served Cold

I've really been looking forward to Leveraged Sell-Out's (a.k.a. Amit Chatwani's) book, the epic, and now ironically titled, Damn, It Feels Good to Be a Banker And Other Baller Things You Only Get to Say If You Work on Wall Street. And it looks like the book will now be released in August. 2008. Bad timing, sure, but I'll still read it.

The Times said: “from a literary perspective, this book makes Monkey Business look like The Brothers Karamazov.” Which for The Times is a bad review but for me is a great review because I loved Monkey Business. So there.

One Penn State grad student, however, read only the preface and immediately landed a job as a portfolio manager at Citadel so you decide.
