Publisher's Summary

For amiable city trader Jimmy Corby, money was the new rock n' roll. His whole life was a party, adrenaline charged and cocaine fuelled. If he hadn't met Monica, he would probably have ended up either dead or in rehab. But Jimmy was as lucky in love as he was at betting on dodgy derivatives, so instead of burning out, his star just burned brighter than ever.
Rich, pampered and successful; Jimmy; Monica; and their friends lived the dream, bringing up their children with an army of domestic helps. But then it all came crashing down. And when the global financial crisis hit, Jimmy discovered that anyone can handle success. It's how you handle failure that really matters.

Good story but doesn't beat High Society.

I liked this book, the narrator made it come alive for me and the story line kept me listening.
No where near as good as my favourite by Ben Elton which is High Society. The only one of his that comes close to that is This Other Eden.
He does have a great way of adding surprises, shocking the read with an unexpected twist.

Good Naration

I haven't read any of his stuff in a while, and while the narration was good I think I have just grown out of the long comic observations. Would have preferred it to be a little more fast moving
