'If Martin Scorsese's film The Wolf of Wall Street is about the finance industry's greediest adults, Kevin Roose's Young Money is a look at those wolves as cubs' 'Best Book of the Month'

Every year, thousands of eager graduates are hired by the world's financial giants, where they're taught the secrets of making obscene amounts of money -- as well as how to dress, talk, date, drink, and schmooze like real financiers. Young Money is the exclusive, inside story of this well-guarded world.
Investigative reporter Kevin Roose shadows eight rookies as they are exposed to the exhausting workloads, huge bonuses, and recreational drugs that have always characterized Wall Street life. But they experience something new, too: an industry forever changed by the massive financial collapse of 2008. And as they get their Wall Street educations, they face hard questions about morality, prestige, and the value of their work.

Roose's book is like a 21st-century Der Struwwelpeter, a cautionary tale for the young and gifted * Daily Mail *
An excellent book . . . asks a serious and important question: is this really the best use we can make of our brightest young people, to turn them into conformist drones who will mock anyone who turns up at the office in slightly too colourful a tie * Irish Daily Mail *
