Amusing, eye opening, mix of factual and anecdotal accounts of the world-wide credit crunch of 2008-9. if you think it's all about subprime, think again. There are more ways that fool's part with their money.
Eye opening look at the true scale of today's global financial mess and where it came from. Entertaining, politically incorrect at times, perhaps. Ultimately insightful. Buy the book, and then hold on to your wallet!
As with all Michael Lewis books (Liar's Poker, Moneyball), this is a super entertaining read, with lots of great stories. Also one of the best explanations of how Ireland, Greece, Iceland etc all suffered financial crises recently.
