It’s getting to be that time of year when rosy-cheeked college seniors say goodbye to school and hello to the real world.

“The Mooch” as he’s known, has admitted that he may not have been the wisest young banker when he started at Goldman Sachs — he played “chicken” with his Series 7 exam, for example.

But he survived, and with a clear idea of what he wish he’d known then (which is key).

“I wish I had read Andrew Carnegie’s autobiography and not waited until my 25th year on Wall Street,” he told Business Insider.

Just one book? Not too shabby.
