I read this book in the one month of garden leave that I had between moving from Goldman Sachs to HSBC back in 2007.
I loved it, loved it, loved it. Their thoughts on the bidet had me ROFLOL: Troobie and Rolfe wonder why Europeans won’t take a bath but insist on having the cleanest asses in the world!
Very good explanantion of what the world of banking is like. Read this book before going into investment banking. It will really help you understand what is going on in that world.
I recommend Monkey Business in To Become an Investment Banker.
I created my investment banking blog in 2012 as soon as I resigned from i-banking & published my book, To Become An Investment Banker.
Initially published at girlbanker.com, all posts have now been subsumed into my personal website under katsonga.com/GirlBanker.
These blog posts make it as straight-forward for you as possible to get into a top tier investment bank.
I have 7 years of front office i-banking experience from Goldman Sachs and HSBC, in both classic IBD (corporate finance) and Derivatives (DCM / FICC).
I'm also a CFA survivor having passed all three levels on the first attempt within 18 months - the shortest time possible.
