  1. Barry Schwartz, bright guy, family man, ski bum, gets tired of living hand to mouth Gets his MBA and drags family to NY and is quickly swallowed up by the All I can get ethos Ultimately betrays his friends family and even his own values in pursuit of enough , an elusive target, hard to define This book felt a little too pat Wife is strong character yet doesn t seem to feel any need to help out financially so while the main objective was satisfied, I found aspects unsettling My favorite character [...]


  2. I have wanted to read Scott Lasser for a while This book was really good and interesting I didn t understand much that was happening on the desk but I really didn t have to You could feel the energy and speed and activity that happens on Wall Street just from Lasser s storytelling But I also really enjoyed the time outside of the job, with his family Without spoiling anything, it made some of the events hard to read because the main character, Barry, is actually really likeable and you tend to f [...]


  3. I read this book because it was given to me by a good friend whom I respected After quite a few pages, I called her to verify that, indeed, I would enjoy this book So much of the story was the convoluted passages through the financial world Having NO brain for this arena and NO interest in it, I was having a hard time wading through the pages of All I Can Get We all know that balancing work and family is very tough Lasser handles it realistically but I don t want to read that kind of downerbut I [...]


  4. Im sure this book would be interesting if you knew or cared about the ins and outs of bond trading Man moves his family from Colorado to New York to get a job on Wall Street Works long hours, has an affair, decides the only way to get ahead is to screw people over in his office Makes enemiesn you see it coming.wife leaves him and takes family back to Colorado Man quits job and moves back to Colorado in an attempt to reconciliate Would have been better if he would have killed himself at the end. [...]


  5. It was personally a very slow read for me, but Lasser definitely shows Barry as an individual who immerses himself in his job, and ends up neglecting what s important in his bland life his family The message sent was clear, but I wasn t executed excitingly.


  6. Didn t understand all the intricacies of stock market trading but the book held my interest It s really a love storye love of a man for a woman and a man for his jobIn the end the woman wins.As it shouldof course.


  7. Even though you knew where this had to be going it still sucked you in I loved the writing, and I don t say that lightly Also I was moved to tears when things start let s say changing in his life.




  8. A slightly disgusting cautionary tale about greed and it s effects Very Wall St I read this years ago, but given the economic circumstances, it s very current.




  9. Loved the information about Wall Street Man has to choose between a high pressure job where he never spends time with his family or losing them entirely.Power plays on trading floor and office maneuvers make for interesting reading What goes around comes around.Will look for Battle Creek as I hourly enjoyed Lasser.
