Great book. Tells the story of the 2008 wall street crash from the perspective of the few in the financial world who understood early-on the huge risk the mortgage backed securities business presented to the whole world. Lewis does a good job explaining how these deals worked , presenting just enough detail without turning it into a finance text book. I would recommend this to any one who wants to understand how the whole Crash came about.
