Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

When retired telecommunications analyst Dan Reingold decided to write an account of what he'd seen while working for powerful Wall Street investment banks, he turned to his niece, a journalist at Fast Company and the author of Final Accounting: Ambition, Greed and the Fall of Arthur Anderson, for help. Together, they've created a solid structure for his recollections of life in the trenches, but because he's one of the good guys, Reingold doesn't have much to confess. Beyond detailing every step in his upward career mobility, Reingold does little but gripe about people like his main competitor, Jack Grubman, who spent years flaunting insider connections with executives who would float him advance info on major corporate deals. (Grubman is currently a defendant in several securities fraud cases.) Reingold does suggest that insider influence is so pervasive in the financial market that investors should avoid individual stocks completely, and he has a number of recommendations for industry-wide reform, but in the end, his story is basically that he worked in the same industry as a bunch of bad eggs. While the personal material is never less than engaging, it doesn't fundamentally alter our understanding of the recent market scandals. (Feb.)

From Booklist

Reingold, a prominent Wall Street analyst from 1989 to 2003, sets out to give a first-person narrative about business fraud and scandal. Because the author began his career at MCI, he opens the book with the trial of WorldCom (MCI)'s Bernie Ebbers and the mid-2002 collapse of the company, caused by lies and deception, which resulted in the $180-billion decline in shareholder value and 30,000 employees fired. As a telecom analyst on Wall Street, it was his job to understand WorldCom's numbers, and he missed the manipulation, as did many others. Turning his focus toward Wall Street, the author reveals how it really works. Although there has been some cleanup, he contends there are still many leaks, conflicts, and abuses of the law and investor trust. He claims that the book's contents are true, and unfair and often-illegal use of inside information continues. He believes that the average investor can never win the stock-market game, which belongs to the insiders. Interesting insight. Mary Whaley
