Review

Praise for Decisions

"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

"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.'"
Bloomberg News 

"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

"Good things sometimes happen in life. Janet Tavakoli's latest book. Recommend it to all financial professionals."
Global Association of Risk Professionals

"An authority on credit derivatives, has written a reflective memoir about life in the world of finance. Tavakoli is not a woman who employs words carelessly, and when she says fraud she means ... fraud."
All About Alpha

Praise for Janet M. Tavakoli

"She knows her stuff, has strong opinions, and turns a colourful quote."
Financial Times


"Janet Tavakoli knows more about the inside of the financial world than nearly anyone else!"
Jim Rogers, Author of Street Smarts - Adventures on the Road and in the Markets

"Intelligent analyst whose command of the arcane world...mixed with a brutally honest analytical framework makes it a pleasure to read her work."
Asia Times Online

From the Author

Decisions is a short nonfiction Wall Street memoir. The pressures of Wall Street's low moral tone combined with personal and professional decisions reshaped people's lives, drove some to despair, and changed the landscape of global finance.
