Bombardiers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller What Should I Do with My Life?, Bombardiers is Po Bronson?s first novel, a devastating satire of the business world told through the lens of a crazed and colorful group of salespeople forced to push increasingly absurd financial products.

Review:

"The first thing you?ll want to do after reading Bombardiers...is to buy futures on Bronson?s career. This first novel is both funny and wise." San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"Perhaps the most entertaining depiction of greed and dishonesty on Wall Street ever to see print...Bronson is a major talent, able to craft the kind of passages you reread just to revel in prose with a compelling cadence all its own." BusinessWeek

Review:

"The prose explodes with the force of a volcano, the dialogue is as flashy as a fireworks display, and the characters are as relentlessly driven as motorcycles on the wall of death." Time Out

Review:

"A hilarious must read for anyone with a brokerage account or mutual fund." USA Today

Review:

"A vicious, hilarious satire of bond traders and, by extension, the prevailing mindset of corporate America.... Required reading for politicians and financiers, in hopes that it will make them think twice about the way they're mortgaging America's future. Required reading for everyone else, just because it's so much fun." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Hilarious, mad-as-hell entertainment that bites like an alligator...filled with the most memorable cast of loonies and sharpies since One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." New York Daily News
