The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine

The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine

Michael Lewis

the genuine tale of the crash begun in weird and wonderful feeder markets the place the sunlight does not shine and the SEC does not dare, or trouble, to tread: the bond and genuine property spinoff markets the place geeks invent impenetrable securities to benefit from the distress of lower--and middle--class americans who cannot pay their money owed. The shrewdpermanent those who understood what was once or will be taking place have been paralyzed via desire and worry; at least, they were not speaking.

Michael Lewis creates a clean, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and darkish humor, a becoming sequel to his number one bestseller Liar's Poker. Out of a handful of unlikely--really unlikely--heroes, Lewis models a narrative as compelling and strange as any of his prior bestsellers, proving all over again that he's the best and funniest chronicler of our time.

The no 1 New York Times bestseller: "It is the paintings of our best monetary journalist, on the best of his video game. And it is advisable to reading."—Graydon Carter, Vanity Fair
