Straight to hell: true tales of deviance, debauchery, and billion-dollar deals

By: Lefevre, John
Material type: TextTextPublisher: New York Atlantic Monthly Press 2015Description: 313 p.ISBN: 9780802123305Subject(s): Investment bankers - Biography | Investment banking - Humor | Banks and banking - Humor | Money - Humor | AutobiographiesDDC classification: 332.1097 Summary: Over the past three years, the notorious @GSElevator Twitter feed has offered a hilarious, shamelessly voyeuristic look into the real world of international finance. Hundreds of thousands followed the account, Goldman Sachs launched an internal investigation, and when the true identity of the man behind it all was revealed, it created a national media sensation—but that’s only part of the story. Where @GSElevator captured the essence of the banking elite with curated jokes and submissions overheard by readers, Straight to Hell adds John LeFevre’s own story—an unapologetic and darkly funny account of a career as a globe-conquering investment banker spanning New York, London, and Hong Kong. Straight to Hell pulls back the curtain on a world that is both hated and envied, taking readers from the trading floors and roadshows to private planes and after-hours overindulgence. Full of shocking lawlessness, boyish antics, and win-at-all-costs schemes, this is the definitive take on the deviant, dysfunctional, and absolutely excessive world of finance.
