I've finished The Quants recently, which I thought was thoroughly terrible.
I didn't think at all that quant traders were guilty of causing the credit crisis. Some of them were victimized by it.
Anyway thats just my personal review.

ANY NEW GOOD BOOKS ON MONEY, FINANCE, WALLSTREET, ETC TO READ?

I read Paulson's book and thought it was great. I am biased because I used to work in the department he managed.

ohhh ok, that'd be awesome as well. But yeah the politics seem ridiculous, just all the niceties and stupid customs you have to follow. Sounds really irritating
