Liar's Poker - Michael Lewis

Having read FIASCO, I think I've become addicted to pulpy stories of traders lives, which generally combine useful-for-work odds-and-ends with jaw-dropping stories of insanity and stupidity. This is another such book, but not quite as fun as FIASCO. The complex derivatives are replaced with plain bonds plus a few more anecdotes. It's not quite as vicious, but it's still quite readable.
