Description

The long-awaited follow-up to the global best-seller Liar's Poker, The Big Short tells a story of spectacular, epic folly.

It has taken the world's greatest financial meltdown to bring Michael Lewis back to the subject that made him famous. His international best seller Liar's Poker exposed the greed and carnage of the City and Wall Street in the 1980s; he wrote it as a cautionary tale, but people seem to have read it as a how-to guide. Now, he wants to settle accounts. In this visceral tour to the heart of the money-making machine, Michael Lewis traces the origins of the crisis and introduces us to a new cast of compulsively fascinating characters. We meet the people who saw it coming, the people who were asleep at the wheel, and others who were actively driving us all off the cliff. Where did it all start? How could we have all been so deluded for quite so long? Did it really have to be this way? And who the hell can we blame? Michael Lewis has the answers.

No one is better qualified to reveal the dark truths about how our world really works. No one else could make it such an enjoyable ride along the way.

This edition includes a prologue read by the author, plus an exclusive author interview.

This books proves fact is better than fiction

You dont have to understand or love money to love this rollicking true life drama. i didnt want it to end and when it did i immediately bought Liars Poker. Michael Lewis is as smart as the guys that bet short.

The best financial reporting ever!

This was my first Michael Lewis book and I am new to the world of finance. Michael has an innate ability to explain complex terms in a wonderful story format. I highly recommend this book to anyone remotely interested in knowing the financial crisis of 2007 and finance world in general

Flabbergasted

Narration is good. Story is interesting and shocking. Provides an insight into financial crisis which is a little sickening. You will not be a fan of wall street after this.

Fascinating and boring

This story is incredible. I watched the film and thoroughly enjoyed the story, and so I wanted to get into more of the detail. However, it's a seriously detailed read and not so easy to follow the technical aspects. But enjoyable none the less -- especially having the characters from the film in my imagination.

Enjoyable story of disaster

A fascinating true story of the subprime crisis and Wall Street malfeasance. Leaves you with a distaste for what the US government did in bailing out the banks. They should have been allowed to fail with the cash and guarantees going to the savers instead of the speculators.
