Let’s Help Greg Smith Name His Book

Earlier today, the Times reported that former Goldman Sachs employee Greg Smith– he of third place Maccabiah Games finishes and very public breakup letters fame–, along with his newly acquired agent (Paul Fedorko), have been making the rounds at various publishing houses for the last week, pitching a book CNBC’s Kate Kelly says may go for more than $1 million at auction.

It’s still in the early stages, though, and most likely untitled. As Greg, according to Kelly, “regards himself as friend of Wall Street,” let’s do him a solid and come up with some options. The tome is being pitched as a “coming-of-age story, the tale of someone who came into the business with good intentions and sky-high ideals that were ultimately pierced by Goldman’s obsessive focus on making money.” So far all we’ve got are “Why They Don’t Hug Anymore At Goldman Sachs,” “Sixth-Balling Your Clients– A Story Of Goldman Sachs,” and “Den of Thieves: Tripping Over Ethics And My Shoe-Laces At Goldman Sachs.” Surely you can do better.

    • Cut Me says:

      Really noble to make a shit ton of money selling crappy investments, then feel like you've vindicated by publicly ripping your former employer.

    • Mike's Father says:

      Son, he wasn't brave. Brave would've been first to make his concerns known to senior management, and make at least one suggestion of a solution or what he thought was the right way forward and see if management responded positively. Nothing he said/wrote indicates that he went that route. Instead he went for maximum publicity and controversy but not acting as an agent of change. That's not brave. Its opportunistic and fame seeking behavior and this latest news proves that.

    • guest says:

      Because he made millions while at GS and clearly knowing he was ripping his clients. Now he wanted to gain fame by publicly ripping his former employer. This guy is an asshole.
