The illegal trading practices of the Keynes Society he wants to become a whistle blower But why risk paradise on earth against such intimidating power What's the net asset value of one's soulLentz's approach to writing is soul driven The Weston Forum His writing is different because he does not manufacture cookie cutter best sellers but writes on a higher plane for a higher purpose The Wilton BulletinThere is a balance in his writing Lentz has a talent for blending a compelling story line with pathos and humor a measure of literary and historical allusion and vivid imagery The result is the literary euivalent of high definition the reader is bombarded with rich text that infuses the senses The Greenwich Po I stalled on the reading of this book but something about its presentation compelled me to finish and I loved it Our protagonist possesses the American Dream coupled with a crippling sleep disorder Because his life has been so outwardly blessed with an Ivy League education a loving family and an enviable lifestyle it might be difficult for onlookers to sympathize with or even comprehend his very private struggle The dream seuences threw me from the flow alerting me very early on that this is not your typical passive read I became very attached to the character and the reality that he too couldn’t distinguish between what was and wasn’t real Add to that a window into the scandalous nature of the financial industry and the Faustian dilemmas of Everyman Is life a zero sum game Interwoven throughout the intensity of the plot were gems of thought provocation To uote from the book my favorite line among many is “I have learned that at some point in one’s life sooner or later one is destined to become what you once criticized” How true that rings for those of us willing to admit it Overall a big win
