Dreadful - a waste of a credit

The chap who wrote this was apparently a quant, not a trader, and this is not an inside story - it's a badly written fiction. The financial details of the story may well be accurate, but there is an awful lot of fantasy about fast cars & expensive prostitutes, which doubtless appealed to the author but which I found utterly uninteresting, badly written & insulting to my intelligence.

A big disappointment.
