Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Big Short by Michael Lewis, read by Jesse Boggs and the author.
'We fed the monster until it blew up ...'
While Wall Street was busy creating the biggest credit bubble of all time, a few renegade investors saw it was about to burst, bet against the banking system - and made a fortune.
From the jungles of the trading floor to the casinos of Las Vegas, this is the outrageous story of the misfits, mavericks and geniuses who, against all odds, made the greatest financial killing in history.
It's time to throw another tank of petrol on the Wall Street pyre, as only Lewis can
He is so good everyone else may as well pack up
No one writes with more narrative panache about money and finance than Mr. Lewis
Probably the single best piece of financial journalism ever written
Terrifying and superbly told
Compelling and horrifying
A more than worthy successor to Liar's Poker ... if you want to know about the origins of the credit crunch, and the extraordinary cast of misfits, visionaries and chancers who made money from the crash, there's no more readable account
A triumph ... riveting ... a genuine page-turner
Michael Lewis explores why government bureaucracy is the surprising threat that we've all been ignoring.
