Abstract:

Wall Street. It's where fortunes are made and lost within minutes, where careers begin and end just as quickly, and where split-second timing often means the difference between fast fortune or total ruin. Traders' Tales offers a tantalizing picture of this singular culture with a spectacular collection of incredible true stories, myths, startling secrets, and insider jokes. Falling somewhere between Liar's Poker and Aesop's Fables, this behind-the-scenes look features.

Some of the best-known names in the business - Leon Cooperman, Muriel Siebert, Marvin Roffman, Liam Dalton - as well as a host of unknown talents who have also left their mark on "the Street" and its folklore.
