Inside the Hidden World of Wall Street's Post-Crash Recruits
By Kevin Roose (Audiobook, 2014)
Becoming a young Wall Street banker is like pledging the world's most lucrative and soul-crushing fraternity. Every year, thousands of eager college graduates are hired by the world's financial giants, where they're taught the secrets of making obscene amounts of money-- as well as how to dress, talk, date, drink, and schmooze like real financiers.

YOUNG MONEY
Inside the Hidden World of Wall Street's Post-Crash Recruits


YOUNG MONEY is the inside story of this well-guarded world. Kevin Roose, New York magazine business writer and author of the critically acclaimed The Unlikely Disciple, spent more than three years shadowing eight entry-level workers at Goldman Sachs, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, and other leading investment firms. Roose chronicled their triumphs and disappointments, their million-dollar trades and runaway Excel spreadsheets, and got an unprecedented (and unauthorized) glimpse of the financial world's initiation process.

Roose's young bankers are exposed to the exhausting workloads, huge bonuses, and recreational drugs that have always characterized Wall Street life. But they experience something new, too: an industry forever changed by the massive financial collapse of 2008. And as they get their Wall Street educations, they face hard questions about morality, prestige, and the value of their work.

YOUNG MONEY is more than an exposé of excess; it's the story of how the financial crisis changed a generation-and remade Wall Street from the bottom up.

  • Praise for The Unlikely Disciple:

    "Well-written, thoughtful, and surprisingly three-dimensional . . . The charm and emotional heft of Roose's book lies in his honesty. . . a refreshing cease-fire in the wearying culture wars, likely holding surprises for anyone-theist, atheist, or somewhere in between." --A.V. Club, The Onion

    "[A] vivid, sunny, and skeptical portrait of life among the saved." --New York Times

    "What makes THE UNLIKELY DISCIPLE remarkable is that it doesn't take the cheap shot or make the easy joke . . . never anything but fair." --DailyBeast.com

    "Very funny . . . I loved this book." --Slate.com
