House of Cards: A Tale of Hubris and Wretched Excess on Wall Street by William D Cohan
House of Cards: A Tale of Hubris and Wretched Excess on Wall Street

zeebee, January 3, 2013

This is a must read for all those interested in understanding the support behind Occupy Wall Street and capping compensation for corporate executives. This book captures how poor management, lack of controls, and herd mentality led to short term profits, enormous bonuses, and overpayment to corporate executives who had no understanding of their own business models nor the leadership team they put in place. While the top echelon ran off with mega millions and continue to be allowed into the fraternity of upper management, millions of hardworking employees continue to pay the price. Both sides are presented but in the end, he who finds and exploits the loop holes is rewarded with the biggest prize.

Not only will this book make you feel good, it will change the way you interact with dogs.
This is a fantastic read - funny, sad, and warm, and angry in one sitting.
You will not regret this read.

Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteyngart
Super Sad True Love Story

zeebee, September 15, 2011

This book is so funny on so many fronts-- the embrace of technology across life stages, the melting pot of America, the current credit meltdown, and the present "follow me" social networking bravado.
It was amazing how many trends were incorporated in this book that had you relating to it and laughing out loud.
Shteyngart takes each of these areas to the brink of absurdity but you find yourself saying "that pretty much is what is going on today - It's not so far out."
He's the literary counterpart to movie maker/producer Woody Allen. Same intellectually twisted humor
