I worked in Lehman Brothers Asia at the same time as Mike and was acquainted with him at the time. I was therefore looking forward to seeing whether this would be the next Liar's Poker of Wall St. The book is part autobiography, part confessional, part expose, part-fiction (by Mike's own admission) - all of which makes this book a confused hotch potch of fact and allegory, although at times (all to briefly) it comes on par with Liar's Poker. First and foremost the book desperately needs an editor - how else could you explain the inclusion of such disparate topics as saturation diving, letters from Nigerian con men, rather lame attempts at humour through the inclusion of bogus contracts and fictious memos on trading floor language, in a book which supposedly is an exposé of Wall St firms in Asia. Lehman Brothers was indeed populated by a cast of colourful, but not necessarily malicious characters, and the political posturings and constant restructurings are worthy of a book, but sadly this book fails to capture much of the pace of the firm in Asia. That said there are some sharp observations and acute caricatures of some of the people.
Aside from the poor editing the other major fault of the book is that we get a relatively sterile cardboard cut out version of Marin himself, not the full colour, all singing, all dancing version we came to know and love (well almost) - missing is the Marin with the Rolls Royce, his blonde bodacious girlfriend, Debbie (who gets only oblique reference in two paragraphs), the therapy sessions, Marin the serious gun enthusiast, Marin getting head-hunted to Deutsche Bank (very brief mention), Marin 'the Rod', Marin the misunderstood, Mike the absent, etc, about our erstwhile hero which would have livened up the book considerably. In conclusion the book fails to measure up with Liar's Poker, but for those who knew him the book provides an entertaining tour through the mind of Mr. Marin

I realize Mr. Marion says this book is a mixture of fact and fiction, but the amalgamation of both coupled with this writing style, essentially render the whole effort fiction and comic-book fantasy reading. As such, if you read it for entertainment purposes only, it has engaging sections. Yet many sections completely bore you or make you feel Mr. Marin is simply boasting about his supposed prowess and intellectual escapades (not to mention his sexual escapades). In short, after the roller-coaster ride through Tokyo's Chuo-Ku, it leaves you somewhat cheapened, like a one night stand by the author and Wall-Street's biggest. I suppose that was the intent based on the title, but you never realize how bad that can be till the "morning after."

This is a really strange book. I`m an expat with a bank in Tokyo so I wanted to read this book as soon as I heard about it. But it was a big disappointment. I know Lehman did some crooked stuff, but where are the really juicy details? Why did the author make us read so much about his time at Yale Law School and other experiences that have nothing to do with the book`s title? And a lot of the book seems like a personal vendetta against people that the author worked with at Lehman.

I couldn't tell if this book was supposed to be true. Is Lehman Brothers really such a crooked place? I work in financial services so of course I have heard of Lehman Brothers. I thought that was a good company. This book makes them sound like a cross between Enron and the Japanese Yakuza. The writer has a very unusual style, but it is pretty easy to read. Any body who works with Lehman Brothers should probably read this book!
