I bought this book at the Phoenix airport on the way home from an interview (I didn’t get the job, bummer).  This book describes the major changes in investment banking from the early 1990s through 2005 from the point of view of a participant, the author.  I liked this book a lot – I didn’t know a lot about investment banking, having only worked for a commercial bank (and they are quite different).  Knee has a nice, direct writing style, and he provides a lot of bootstrapping information so you can understand the events he writes about.
