Liars Poker

I just finished the abridged audiobook of Liars Poker by Michael Lewis. It's about his experience in the 1980s as a bond trader for Salomon Brothers. It currently has 4.5 stars from 250 Amazon reviewers. The book is popular and even has a wikipedia page.

This book is an interesting look into the world of bond trading, and I definitely learned a few things. The audiobook is only 3 hours long, so it's probably lacking some details that are in the unabridged print editions. I found it more interesting to mentally follow the author's career, since he's my age and I could compare where I was in my own career at the same times.
