Publisher Description

Chances are you haven’t been making the best investing decisions.

Why?

BECAUSE THAT’S HOW WALL STREET WANTS IT


Wall Street is very good at one thing: convincing you to act against your own interests. And there’s no one out there better equipped with the knowledge and moxie to explain how it all works than Josh Brown. A man The New York Times referred to as “the Merchant of Snark” and Barron’s called “pot-stirring and provocative,” Brown worked for 10 years in the industry, a time during which he learned some hard truths about how clients are routinely treated—and how their money is sent on a one-way trip to Wall Street’s coffers.

Backstage Wall Street reveals the inner workings of the world’s biggest money machine and explains how a relatively small confederation of brilliant, sometimes ill-intentioned people fuel it, operate it, and repair it when necessary—none of which is for the good of the average investor.

Offering a look that only a long-term insider could provide (and that only a “reformed” insider would want to provide), Brown describes:

THE PEOPLE—Why retail brokers always profit—even if you don’t

THE PRODUCTS—How funds, ETFs, and other products are invented as failsafe profit generators—for the inventors alone

THE PITCH—The marketing schemes designed for one thing and one thing only: to separate you from your money

It’s that bad . . . but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Brown gives you the knowledge you need to make the right decisions at the right time.

Backstage Wall Street is about seeing reality for what it is and adjusting your actions accordingly. It’s about learning who and what to steer clear of at all times. And it’s about setting the stage for a bright financial future—your own way.

Entertaining and insightful

This was one of the first books of its kind that I have read, and it was great! I have just been hired by a warehouse firm, so I thought I would pick up a few books to get my feet wet. Backstage Wall Street had a ton of insight into what really drives The Street, firms, big and small, where to put your trust, and what to avoid like the plague. This book really is a great book for investors, brokers, and newbies such as myself whom are looking for a bit of a behind the scenes peek at the finance game.

Great book... Couldn't put it down... Would recommend to anyone!
