I and my kidson high school the other college all enjoyed this book immensely My daughter said it was the best book she'd read all semester and my son passed it around If you read this book you;ll laugh a lot get really angry and be amazed at what happens on Wall Street and the crazy world of high society and the false facades it hides behind I really recommend it

Hich he is wholly unprepared Nothing Personal is a stellar debut novel which follows an increasingly jaded protagonist as he comes of age in a rarified deeply corrupt world Offit a former senior insider unflinchingly divulges Wall Street's culture of abuse and portrays the insidious creeping forces of greed sex and power and the terrible price paid in their thrall This is a case of a novel that actually does nothing wrong but does nothing to stand out either At least not to me I've read reviews by people knowledgeable of Wall Street culture than I am and they seem to have enjoyed this novel very much I liked it I thought it was clever and well structured yet I failed to have an emotional reaction to NOTHING PERSONAL It just didn't move the needly all that much I appreciated its architecture than I liked its contentLet's concentrate on the positive though It's too easy to pick something apart NOTHING PERSONAL is a uite satisfying zeitgeist piece about Wall Street culture its vapid ideals and the hollow pursuits that characterize its nature It's what NOTHING PERSONAL mainly is and in that regard you can draw influences from Tom Wolfe's BONFIRE OF VANITIES as well as from 19th century literature What interested me the most in NOTHING PERSONAL is how Mike Offit seemlessly integrated a mystery in the cultural landscape he was building It layers the novel uite efficiently and gives a different dimension to Offit's writingYou have to be into Wall Street to be into NOTHING PERSONAL You have to seriously love and dream about the thing If you don't like me it'll swing by you and won't leave a strong impression I appreciate how committed Mike Offit was to his subject but NOTHING PERSONAL was not my thing
