Summary
Michael Lewis offers a critical look at the financial collapse of 2008 and reveals how the American economy shot itself in the foot. With cynical wit and humor, Lewis exposes the bungling villains who steered the economy toward a recession and chronicles the harrowing attempts of a few hopeless heroes who foresaw this tragedy
