Slippery by Liam Carroll?

Anyone read the book in the title of this post?

Had it recommended to me by a couple guys I used to work with in Houston that are in the oil trading space and was curious to hear if it had made it out of those circles yet. Just ordered it on Amazon, looking forward to reading it. Amazon reviews look promising as well but who knows if those are legit or his friends trying to help him out.

I ordered it. Read the first page and will pick it back up but I have the worry we're going to feel like attorneys reading The Pelican Brief.

That isn't what I wanted to hear. Oh well, seems like a short and easy read.

Was given it as a Secret Santa gift by a colleague this past Christmas. Agree with @nattyphizz - the first 2/3rds or so are quite good fun, and then it goes completely downhill. It's written by a former energy and metals trader, so the more technical content (not that it's at all ever heavy-going) is all correct and proper. Would give it a read for the S&Gs, but would recommend the classics (e.g. Liar's Poker) ahead if you haven't read them yet!
