Cityboy: Beer and Loathing in the Square Mile Summary

Cityboy: Beer and Loathing in the Square Mile by Geraint Anderson

CITYBOY is Geraint Anderson's bestselling expose of life in the City of London.

In this no-holds-barred, warts-and-all account of life in London's financial heartland, Cityboy breaks the Square Mile's code of silence, revealing tricks of the trade and the corrupt, murky underbelly at the heart of life in the City. Drawing on his experience as a young analyst in a major investment bank, the six-figure bonuses, monstrous egos, and the everyday culture of verbal and substance abuse that fuels the world's money markets are brutally exposed as Cityboy describes his ascent up the hierarchy of this intensely competitive and morally dubious industry, and how it almost cost him his sanity.

Engaging, timely and important * Times *
His timing couldn't be better ... London's pernicious financial world reveals itself in all its ugliness * Daily Mail *
'Excruciatingly candid' * Sunday Times *

About Geraint Anderson

Geraint Anderson's dream of becoming a global traveller was cruelly dashed after university at Oxford, when his brother got him an interview at a French bank in the City, which, unbeknown to him at the time, would set him on the rocky road to destruction and despair. A chance for salvation came in September 2006 when he was offered the opportunity to write the anonymous weekly City Boy column in thelondonpaper.
