Praise for Decisions: Life and Death on Wall Street
"Tavakoli takes us on a scenic tour of the recent lowlights of Wall Street and Washington...demystified and rendered tragically human. It's a compelling tale."
Jake Bernstein, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting
"Janet Tavakoli is a born storyteller with an incredible tale to tell. She takes us on a brisk journey from the depravity of 1980s Wall Street to the systemic recklessness that crushed the global economy."
Nomi Prins, author of All the Presidents' Bankers
"Merrill Debauchery Only Begins This Woman's Tale... 'Neither Bill nor I believed Calvi committed suicide,' Tavakoli writes. 'Bill joked that he'd never hang himself. It was too gruesome.'"
"Good things sometimes happen in life. Janet Tavakoli's latest book. Recommend it to all financial professionals."

In short, this book is nearly a decade of Ms. Tavakoli's writings and insight distilled to its key points and compacted into less than 100 pages.
Our society spends most of the time preoccupied with nonsense news, pointless celebrities and gossip. In the meantime, bankers and politicians are setting us up, and robbing us blind. They are demonstrating how fool we are and how they keep stealing our money and we let them get away with it. It discuss me the arrogance and clear disregard for ethics and common decency.
This book is for the average person that wants to see through the veil of fanancial jargon and complicated transactions. She explains it in a way anybody can understand it. That's the magic of this book.
