APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Michael Lewis' rundown of Wall Street's 2008 subprime fiasco is too captivating to put down. The bestselling author and former banker puts into plain-speak the calamity that bankers created, sharing jaw-dropping anecdotes of willful blindness, greed, ignorance and deception. His portraits of those few in the finance industry who saw the disaster coming years in advance are particularly fascinating: an awkward ex-neurologist, a terrifyingly blunt Gordon Gekko–haired trader and a cynical, brazen fund manager who relished punishing big banks. All in all, The Big Short took us on a stomach-churning (and infuriating) ride through the finance sector's implosion.
