I took a risk on buying this book as I am completely illiterate in all things Wall Street. It paid off quite nicely because the author takes us through his journey on Wall Street from his own beginning as an painfully clueless intern. He explains the function of a Wall Street trader in a way that almost anyone can understand and I found it fascinating. He takes the reader with him as he moves up the ladder, becoming one of the biggest names on the Buy Side. While doing this, Duff seamlessly delves into the accompanying lifestyle of the trader-where more money can be made in one day than many people make in a decade. The excess is almost inevitable but it's the drugs that are Duff's final undoing. And eventually, his redoing. Ultimately, he sees the emptiness in all of it but not until he goes through his own version of hell. The beauty of this book is that you need not be a finance major to enjoy it, because the book is not about finance, or stocks, or trading at all. It's about our ever-increasing need to find something outside of ourselves to make us happy, and never finding it.

Where does The Buy Side rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
A little slow out of the gates, but content gets real juicy as the book progresses. A very open tale of his life full from the good to the bad. It's a good read.
