The book Straight to Hell takes a look inside the world of investing and stock trading. This book is from the perspective of John LeFevre. John tells the story starting from the time he attended boarding school up until the peak of his career. He gives an uncensored look into his life and the life of many of his colleagues. This is a world filled with lies and deception where the rules do not apply.
Many people have recently become familiar with the dark side of the stock market from watching the popular film The Wolf of Wall Street. John gives a look into his life and he gives a contrast to the main characters from other famous financial industry villain stories. John started his investing career in New York before moving to London and then spent the majority of his time working out of Hong Kong.
