The Buy Side

The Buy Side (2013) by Turney Duff is a well written memoir of career on Wall Street and a simultaneous drug addiction.

Turney paints himself well and is a sympathetic character. He charts his rise on Wall Street to a trader and also chronicles his use of alcohol and drugs. Stories of people on Wall Street are mixed with stories of parties. What a subset of Wall Street workers do with their money is carefully described.

Turney’s addictions get the better of him. It’s a sad descent but one that he comes through in a strange way. The book is interesting and entertaining, it’s not Liar’s Poker but it is an interesting chronicle of how a high functioning drug addict.
