1 Mezrich, Ben Ugly Americans - The True Story of the Ivy League Cowboys Who Raided the Asian Markets for Millions
New York William Morrow 2004 006057500x / 9780060575007 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING. A Fine unmarked copy with Fine complete dustjacket. The true story of John Malcolm, a hungry Princeton graduate who travelled half way round the world in search of the American dream and ultimately pulled off a trade that could be described as the biggest deal in the history of the financial markets. After receiving a mysterious phone call he packed up his few belongings and went to Japan and with barely a penny in his pocket and without speaking a word of Japanese, was thrown into the bizarre, adrenaline fuelled world of the expat trader, quickly learning to survive in a cutthroat world. Malcolm was first an assistant trading huge positions for Nick Leeson, the 26 year old rogue trader who lost nearly 2 billion Dollars which brought down Barings Bank, then he was right hand man to Dean Carney, a brilliant hedge fund cowboy who grew into the biggest derivatives trader in all of Asia. Along the way Malcolm fell in love with the daughter of a Yakuza, a Japanese gangster, built a fortune out of thin air and came head to head with the violent Japanese mobsters who helped turn the Asian markets into the turbulent casino it is today.
