The genuine tale of the crash all started in weird and wonderful feeder markets the place the solar 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 american citizens who cannot pay their money owed.

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 weird as any of his prior bestsellers, proving once more that he's the best and funniest chronicler of our time.
