Rigged: The True Story of an Ivy League Kid Who Changed the World of Oil, from Wall Street to Dubai
"After conquering the hallowed halls of Harvard Business School, an Italian-American kid from the streets of Brooklyn decides to take on the testosterone-fueled Merc Exchange in lower Manhattan where billions of dollars in oil money trade hands every week and where fistfights are known to break out on the trading floor.
This ordinary kid has traded Brooklyn for the gold-lined hotel palaces of Dubai. He keeps company on the decks of private yachts in Monte Carlo--teeming with half-naked girls flown in by Saudi sheiks--and makes deals in the dangerous back alleys of Beijing.
But the Merc is just a starting place. Taken under the wing of another young gun and partnering with a mysterious young Muslim, the kid embarks on a dangerous adventure to revolutionize the oil trading industry--and, along with it, the world.
Rigged is the explicit, exclusive, true story behind the headlines that dominate the world stage."
