Well not tape, CD.
I had a long drive and opted to try my hand at books on CD. I picked the associate. I ran out of road before the book was done. It was both a thrill and reality check. The reality check consists of the glamor and abuse associates take on Wall Street. How much of it is true? Probably all of it. You can't even blames these guys for charging, after all if you don't someone else will.
The only thing you gotta balance is a crappy lifestyle. Sure you make 1.5 million a year but man, if you can't spend it what's the point? But that's the push to the top, you wanna roll with the big boys you have to play and work like the big boys.
