PRLog - Jan. 6, 2010 - LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Misfortune 200: A Humorous Journey from Wall Street to Main Street (CreateSpace) offers a rare look into the inner workings of a Wall Street giant that achieved superior financial results and unsurpassed profitability for decades, but fell rapidly as a result of its inability to successfully strike the delicate balance between risk and reward leading up to the most significant disruption in the capital markets since the Great Depression. Sebastian Nigel Paine, the author and narrator, condenses twenty years of his diverse and bizarre experiences as an executive in the U.S. financial services industry into an amusing, fast-paced summary.

This reality-based fictional account of Financial Geniuses Corporation (FGC) chronicles hilarious events and the misfortune that befell FGC after it strategically reached the top two hundred ranking for U.S. corporations.

Misfortune 200 takes jabs at traders, salespersons, quants, techies, business news reporters, management follies, corporate culture, industry jargon, and extracurricular activities. While written with a light-hearted tone, it also explores the painful disruptions inflicted on FGC’s workforce by its unfortunate demise.

Sebastian is a multi-talented businessman, writer and song composer. He is happily married with multiple children and multiple pet dogs. In his spare time, he enjoys participating in a wide variety of sports.
