If we have learnt anything from recent economic upheavals, it's that, rightly or wrongly, bankers get big bonuses. Avaricious stereotypes aside, people don't get money for nothing. So what exactly do they do to earn this level of financial reward? Few people really know — least of all themselves. There's no magic trick that turns someone into a City superstar. It's often not the cleverest of the most hard-working who hit the big time — it's the people who listen, learn and understand that finance is really nothing more than a game. A game that, played correctly, reaps huge rewards. The Game: How the City really works gives you the tools to do just that. Whether you aspire to work there and want to find out what really goes on, have been ensconced there for years and fancy a look in the mirror or simply desire to learn the truth about a world so publicly vilified, this book provides a light-hearted, objective and accessible insight into the City, its people and its machinations.

    What might appear to be a remote but corrupt oasis of privilege is in fact a giant oak tree that towers over the global economy, affecting each and every one of us.
