This is a high-adrenaline, high-stakes romp through the wild world of oil. From the streets of Brooklyn to the hallowed halls of Harvard, from the casino-like trading floor of the Merc Exchange to the exotic, gold- and prostitute-lined streets of Dubai, Rigged reveals the never-before-told, true story of the most important commodity on earth. Rigged is a real life, rags-to-riches story of a twenty-six-year old kid from the streets of Brooklyn who claws his way through Harvard to take on the world of high stakes oil.
