"I have long referred to the author of Backstage Wall Street as "Downtown" Josh Brown because he is no "Uptown Guy." Rather, he is irreverent, unorthodox and iconoclastic.The pages of his new book are filled with colorful exposes of misconduct in the way Wall Street presents and sells itself (and it's financial products offerings!).
Josh's anecdotes - like his description of the audience's reaction to Piper Jaffrey analyst Nicole Miller Regan's questions at a Jamba Juice's analyst day - are priceless.
(With apologies to Billy Joel) if you have "never met a backstreet guy..".. run, don't walk to read the Downtown Man's chronicles of deception from those wonderful folks on Wall Street that nearly bankrupted the world's financial system a few short years ago." -- Doug Kass "TheStreet.com"
