A former broker reveals how his greed and ambition propelled him head-on into the corrupt underworld of Wall Street in the 1990s--a world riddled with stock manipulation, fraud, and even organized crime.

the guys who panned this book must work for the mob

this is a really good book. lauria has a great story to tell, david barry does a great job of telling it. a fascinating but chilling account about what really goes on behind closed wall street doors...


I really enjoyed this book and I thought the infamous ONE STAR REVIEWER might have been giving poor reviews to the wrong book. this is like the inside story 'behind the scenes' with a real life mobster. he shows you a whole different side to the story which makes you really think twice. i totally recomend this book. the writing is pretty good too. good work mr. lauria.

The Scorpion and the Frog

This book brought me into a world distant to me, however I felt like I was living a life of deciet and fraud. I found the book exciting and Concerning. I highly recommend reading this book before you take your next step forward.

An eye opener!

This book tackels subjects that most fear even talking about. From beginning to end I was in both shock and awe - in shock of the world the book so vividly describes, and in awe that someone had the guts to document it.
