Young Money: Inside the Hidden World of Wall Street’s Post-Crash Recruits by Kevin Roose

Kevin Roose spent three years following eight young Wall Streeters in an attempt to find how the 2007 crash – and its aftermath – influenced the financial industry. Young Money paints a decidedly grim picture of junior analysts who find themselves on a non-stop rollercoaster of all-nighters and extreme stress, while earning six-figure incomes.

Kevin Roose is the author of The Unlikely Disciple, and has written for the New York Times and New York Magazine. He is currently senior editor and co-executive producer for the ABCUnivision joint venture, Fusion.
