Greg Smith - the former Goldman Sachs salesman who sent the world's most famous "take this job and shove it" letter when he wrote a blistering op-ed article in The New York Times about life inside Goldman - will release his book, "Why I Left Goldman Sachs: A Wall Street Story" next week.
But the Times reviews a leaked copy of the first chapter of the book. "During Greg Smith's first week at Goldman Sachs, he was issued an identification badge and an e-mail address and each morning he had to scramble to make sure he got an 18-inch folding stool, " the Times reports.
There's apparently a lot written about humiliation—at least in the first chapter titled, "I Don't Know but I'll Find Out." The chapter begins on Smith's first day at Goldman, where he joined more than 70 others in the sales and trading program.
