Eddie Braverman was tossed out of the first brokerage firm he walked into. It wouldn't be the last. Throughout a career measured in the highest of peaks and the lowest of valleys, Eddie is living proof that anyone can make it on Wall Street if they want it badly enough.With no education and no connections, Eddie managed to land a job in a bottom rung boiler room slinging penny stocks, and quickly climbed the ladder to become an elite futures trader. It took less than eight years to hit his walkaway number, and then he achieved what so few in this business seem able to: he actually walked away.He spent the next decade travelling, sailing, and quietly investing in startups and real estate. He was perfectly content to avoid the stock market altogether. That is, until the guys he left minding the store back on Wall Street drove the global economy off a cliff.This is a chronicle of his past five years as head writer for Wall Street Oasis, the largest online community of finance professionals in the world. It includes a collection of his fans' favorite posts, tales of life on the wrong side of the Street, and his never-before-published Plan to destroy one of the four major commercial/investment banks - the plan which led to a Playboy Magazine cover story in November 2010.Equal parts sage philosopher and acerbic zookeeper, Eddie will keep you laughing while showing you the ins and outs of life on the only Street that ever mattered.*10-Percent of the proceeds from the sale of this book go to support Hope For Paws.Early Reviews:'I would highly recommend this book to anybody who is looking for a interesting, fun read even if they aren't interested in finance. The book covers a broad range of topics and Eddie drops great insight into every chapter. The first thing that stands out about the book is the general content of the chapters. Eddie does a great job of covering his career in trading, he goes into great detail about the environment back in the day and paints an amazing picture of what it was like for him to be starting out in the 90's and how he went from a painstakingly awkward rejection from Merrill Lynch to the top of his training class in a matter of months...The writing style was perhaps my favorite part of the book. The way Eddie writes makes it easy to live vicariously into a time where Wall Street was a lot crazier than it is now.' --jss09'So bought this on the pre release, finished it the first day. Overall i think it's a fantastic read, I've printed out a couple of the chapters to keep them as a reference/words of wisdom. The stories from the "good old days" are great but as expected, the true gems are the more general teachings about life.' --derivstrading'The Monkey Lives!! You're uninformed!! Great little chapter, Ed!' --@marty7higgins
