It’s a 23-year-old’s take on the modern parable of the doe-eyed young man thinking there’s endless money with his name on it in the bond market.
PORTLAND, Ore. (PRWEB) April 17, 2015
College graduate Jack Fitzpatrick isn’t the first man tempted into playing in what he found to be a hedonistic, money-obsessed, and sometimes ethically questionable world of finance, but he probably didn’t expect to end up in jail . . . or for things to get even worse.
Author Donald Jans’ new book, “Freaks I’ve Met,” follows Jack Fitzpatrick in his misguided quest to move from Spokane to California to make big money in the finance sector.
“It’s a 23-year-old’s take on the modern parable of the doe-eyed young man thinking there’s endless money with his name on it in the bond market, and he is not afraid to tell you his truth,” Jans said. “Think Wolf of Wall Street meets the humor of Daniel Tosh or Chelsea Handler.”
It’s also a story that explores the mindset that can cause someone to leave behind their smaller town and fall prey to the quest for the almighty dollar. It is common for small towns to have limited industries to make money, placing fresh graduates in the position of either settling with the local powers that be, or leaving for greener pastures . . . or salaries with more green.
Jans himself spent more than twenty years in the institutional bond market, providing plenty of fodder for the story. He is excited to share his new book and hopes readers will resonate with “Freaks I’ve Met.”
