Liar's Poker by Michael Lewis
My favorite quotations thus far:
"I was as helpless as the female victim of arranged marriage who, upon seeing the horrible visage of her chosen mate, shrieks in vain."
"His world was filled with copulating inanimate objects and people getting their faces ripped off."
"The mortgage traders emitted such evil vibes that I carved a wide loop around them every afternoon...They were known for hurling phones at the heads of trainees and were said to have installed extra-long cords to increase their range."
