Loved the book, but how come Barry seems like such a muppet and then against all the odds ends up with mega entrepreneurial skills? Isn’t Bruno supposed to be the trading genius?

  1. Thanks Emma.

    Everyone knows someone like Barry … he’s the sadass nursing a soft drink in the corner of the room when the rest of the party is in full swing. But if you find a piece of common ground and get them on their specialist subject then … you’ll probably regret it.

    Bruno is a “classically trained” Trader … but his training hasn’t been real-world and as a result his heart really isn’t in it. It’s not that he doesn’t understand the concepts, but that he doesn’t understand how they relate to reality.

    It’s Barry’s job to educate him.
