I was fascinated (and disgusted) at this inside glance at the country's bond markets. This is an excellent example when we lose sight of the need for checks and balances in our financial industry. A must-listen to anyone who thinks they understand the bond business. And, then you need to listen to Lewis' latest book, The Big Short.
Yes - I plan on it, but only unabridged offerings.
Warn buyers they are getting less than their money's worth when buying abridged.
This is much like other books I've read about young, immature people who work in the financial industry and have very little concern for other people or their wealth, careers, families, and communities. Lewis writes well enough, but his personal story is very interesting, not as audacious as "Ugly Americans", and not as immoral as "The Wolf of Wall Street." Still, though, Lewis reveals the culture of an industry that is arrogant, crude, and obnoxious; a world that is far removed from reality and morality.
Michael Lewis is a genius at explaining the machinations of Wall Street. The most interesting 3 hours I've ever spent learning about economics
Excellent book that shows money is not everything. There is more to life than money and meaningful life is much different than having more money.
I like Michael Lewis a lot but this was a steady barrage of F this and F that. I had to give it up early on. Try Moneyball or the Big Short instead.
