    One of those books where Ivy-educated lawyers adjust their silk ties as they stride across the worn marble floors of courthouses just a few blocks from the tony addresses where they grew up and attended prestigious private schools that were the training grounds of Manhattan's elite, unlike their cli...

    Well-worth the read if you're interested in securities law, the SEC, finance, insider trading, etc., especially post-2008/2009 reforms to see how things have changed (and more importantly, how they haven't)....
