Episode 057: Turney Duff – Wall Street, Addiction, Rehab, Best-Selling Author, TV Show Consultant
This episode different from the normal Learning Leader Show episode…  Turney contacted me via my website (the contact form www.LearningLeader.com) after he saw the John LeFevre episode published.  He mentioned that he was a fellow Ohio University Bobcat and he had followed my football career.  From this common bond, we developed a friendship and I thought it would be a great idea to record an episode together.  I’m really glad we did it!
Best-selling author Bethany McLean said it best: “Turney Duff is a natural storyteller, and his tale of how a naive kid from Maine traded in L.L. Bean for Armani and got sucked into the seamy side of Wall Street is almost impossible to put down. The book is by turns hilarious, harrowing, maddening, and illuminating. After this debut, the smart money will be on Duff.”

Bio From TurneyDuff.com
The Buy Side, by former Galleon Group trader Turney Duff, portrays an after-hours Wall Street culture where drugs and sex are rampant and billions in trading commissions flow to those who dangle the most enticements. A remarkable writing debut, filled with indelible moments, The Buy Side shows as no book ever has the rewards – and dizzying temptations – of making a living on the Street.
