Book Reviews for In Bed with Wall Street

Posted by Larry Doyle on January 5, 2014 11:53 AM |

I thank everybody who has already purchased In Bed with Wall Street that will be released this Tuesday. I also thank those in the media and blogosphere who have reviewed it. What have reviewers had to say?

The new book by Larry Doyle could be called a “must read”.  This reviewer would go even farther and say it should be required reading for every single American.

I am extremely impressed with the depth of research that went into this book.  Larry Doyle is uniquely qualified and prepared to write this book. And the result is a masterpiece!

-This book will clarify many things for which you may have had an incomplete picture.  It will give another example of the old saw:  You couldn’t make stuff like this up. 

— . . . a blistering account of the way that a “conspiracy” between Washington and Wall Street has lined the pockets of the richest financial services firms at the expense of average Joes.

What is fortunate is this book is eminently readable. It reads like a novel while unfolding page after page of crony capitalism, regulatory capture, outright agency fraud (both within government and the financial industry as well) and abuse of the investing public.

–With great intensity, Doyle focuses on a little-known self-regulator called the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. His deep digging into the operations of that group qualifies as investigative journalism, and the scandalous details he recounts are impressive. 

–The author has clearly done his homework while thinking about a reform effort . . . An important book . . .

Many financial professionals will have awareness of many of the issues addressed in this book.  But few will have been exposed to the details that Larry Doyle has uncovered and documented over the years.

–In Bed with Wall Street has been designated as one of ten Books That Matter by the Project on Government Oversight for their 2014 Winter Reading List.

I will be on a number of radio shows around the country in the weeks ahead. I am also currently scheduled to be on WJLA- News Channel 8 in Washington DC on Thursday morning, “The Big Picture with Thom Hartmann” on Thursday evening, and “Lou Dobbs Tonight” on Fox Business this coming Friday evening.

I welcome the exposure. Most importantly, though, I want to hear from those who have supported my blog over the years as to what you think of the book and especially my proposed reforms in Chapter 12. With those specific proposals and this book, I am elevating the debate from this blog’s platform to an entirely new level.

I hope you will join me in the fight. I thank you.

Navigate accordingly.

    I just pre-ordered your book, Mr. Doyle and look forward to being able to actually download it on the 7th. Your integrity and courage in addressing congressional / Wall Street collusion are deeply appreciated. Hopefully, your voice will be one of a growing number that will finally provide a meaningful catalyst for transparency and corrective regulatory changes.

    I know I’m going to be standing up and cheering when I read the book. I pre ordered it and can’t wait.

  • James

    Good job, Larry. You’re making me proud that I christened you “the conscience of Wall Street”!

  • Ray

    Way to go Larry! Bravo

  • Jake

    Looking forward to reading your book. Happy New Year!

    Mr. Doyle, after having read only the first fifty pages of your book, I find myself wanting to see you interviewed on C-Span’s weekend book review segment. Selected authors are occasionally given a full three hour air time segment during which they can elaborate on their work in dialogue with a well prepared interviewer. I am going to do my best to plant that idea at C-Span, but respectfully suggest your publicity arm also promote your book to them (if this has not already been done). I believe your work would have much appeal for a C-Span Book TV audience.

    • GMA,

      This is too uncanny. I have a book launch tomorrow evening in Washington DC. At the event, there will be a relatively brief talk (20 minutes or so) followed by Q/A. I found out today that C-Span Book TV will be there to tape it for a showing in the not too distant future. More than a little happy with this development. I hope you like the book and believe it will get far more interesting for you in the forthcoming chapters.

        Wonderful news! I will be watching for the broadcast schedule…..
