Editorial Reviews


"Listen up! I have just finished reading the brilliant, fast-paced How To Be A Rogue Trader . . . and hereby recommend it as required reading by the CEOs, risk officers, derivatives traders, boards of directors, accountants and analysts of every publicly held financial institution here or abroad." -- Robert Lenzner, Forbes

"How To Be a Rogue Trader is really good . . . [Gapper] looks at the common pathologies, and finds quite a few. The first is a trait common not only to rogue traders, but rather to all animals -- it's been seen in birds quite vividly. It's the entirely rational decision which you see in any movie where somebody utters the line 'it's the only chance we've got' -- no matter how improbable your chances of success, if the alternative is failure, then you take the gamble." -- Felix Salmon, Reuters

"Timely, pithy and insightful . . . should be must-reading for every senior Wall Street executive as well as every Occupy Wall Street protester who wants to understand the game that's really afoot in the offices he pickets." -- Suzanne McGee, The Fiscal Times
