W.E. Kidd shares his journey after graduating with his MBA and landing his dream job at Credit Suisse. But getting the job is just half the battle and after an intensive training period in Zurich and New York he's left to fend for himself - one man and his student loans against a two-year ticking clock to bring in forty million dollars or get fired. How he strives to make those essential connections and eventually bring in far more than forty million....and what happens to those that can't make the cut, proves mind blowing. Because it's all about the schmooze.

Infused with hilarious references to the "Wall Street" films, indie rock music, and a devil may care attitude, this is not your father's Wall Street tell-all.

“The book is a frank, well-written account that only an insider could tell.” – Scott Kays, President, Kays Financial Advisory Corporation, and author of FIVE KEY LESSONS FROM TOP MONEY MANAGERS

“… a hilarious memoir by a freshly minted MBA getting his first job as a Private Banker/Wealth Builder.” - Sanjeev Prakash, Top 500 Amazon Reviewer

About W.E. Kidd

W.E. Kidd is like a lot of recently graduated young professionals. He's just a guy with some student loans and a healthy obsession with his job. He has worked at a lot of firms on the street: Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, Wachovia, and Credit Suisse. And, he loves to use pop culture references in his writing. He's basically an indie version of Michael Lewis. Or, a cooler version of Greg Smith.
