Jack Maguire's mantra should be the reader's cue about the grind that is Wall Street. Who knew serious financiers required self-talk to get them through their days?
D.F. Whipple pulls back the curtain for us - as he prophetically reveals - just how investment bankers get it done.
Especially intriguing, the assertion of the cultural value of investment banks as entities who use their god-like powers to select which enterprises will go live and those who will never take their first breath.
Shadow Fields offers a real-feel account of the daily gamesmanship on the street. The rewards are lucrative and Jack finds it just too tempting to stay in the game.
As someone who labors on the periphery of this enterprise, I can attest that the author's personal experience surfaces vividly in his work. Well done, D.F.
If you want a first hand look into investment banking and an entertaining ride, pick up Shadow Fields. You'll arrive literate in the vagaries of the market and those who toil in its midst.

Don't understand the raves2012年7月12日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
The five star reviews of Shadow Fields elude me. I found the book's concept and its execution pedestrian: year-by-year account of smart young man's life that leads inexorably to the top of a heap and a realization that the heap is--just a heap. The main character isn't really developed, and the people surrounding him flit into and out of the novel just so he has some company. We don't get to know them; they remain cartoons.

Shadow Fields is a great read!! Jack is a captivating character with struggles that are well storied by D.F. Whipple. The flow of the story was excellent and the writing superb. No part of the story was left unfinished and I was left with a seamless vision of the characters portrayed. I'd highly recommend buying the other book by D.F. Whipple, Snooker Glen.
