Reviews for FIASCO

'Take it from us that F.I.A.S.C.O. is absolute dynamite ... Partnoy doesn't take prisoners.'


'Guns, booze and bloodlust: the truth about high finance'

 The Sunday Times

'Gripping, unreal stuff, delivered with wry humour.'

 Business Age

'F.I.A.S.C.O. is a ringside seat on the nastiest and most important game being played on Wall Street today. Think of derivatives trading as a blood sport, with the unsuspecting consumer as prey. Read this book, or else ...'
