"Following the fortunes of 24-year-old whiz kid Philip Halsey, who having dropped out of college at the age of 20, has parlayed a relatively small stake into a major portfolio. Philip blithely betrays friends, makes and loses considerable amounts of money, juggles the affections of several women, and ultimately comes out not only wealthier but wiser. A tale of a confused, not entirely pleasant, but very bright young man figuring out the nature and purpose of his life. Assured and entertaining". -- Kirkus
