schema:description"The rags-to-riches story of an Italian-American kid from Brooklyn who claws his way into the wild, frenetic world of the oil exchange. After conquering Harvard Business School, he enters the testosterone-laced warrens of the Mercantile Exchange in Lower Manhattan. A place where billions of dollars trade hands every week, the Merc is like a casino on crack, where fistfights break out on the trading floor and men have been known to bring prostitutes as dates to company dinners. This ordinary kid has traded Brooklyn for the gold-lined hotel palaces of Dubai. He keeps company on the decks of private yachts in Monte Carlo--teeming with half-naked girls flown in by Saudi sheiks--and makes deals in the dangerous back alleys of Beijing. Then, taken under the wing of another young gun and partnering with a mysterious young Muslim, he embarks on a dangerous adventure to revolutionize the oil trading industry.--From publisher description."@en
