This book is well written, well researched and informative. It's a shame that the narrator didn't bother to learn how to pronounce a key word [used at least 500 times]; it's shameful that the editor didn't catch the problem.
The narrator sounds like he should be narrating a detective story or The Twilight Zone. That actually is kind of nice, but he neglected to learn how to pronounce key terms such as "tranche" and AXA and keeps confusing "CDSs" [as in credit default swaps--complex and risky derivative insturments] for CDs [as in either certificates of deposit or the things music and/or data are recorded on].
The story is interesting, though not novel.
Overall, the book is good, but as with All the Devils Are Here, the publisher neglected to ensure that the narrator knows how to pronounce all of the words and names. At least, unlike ATDAH, the mispronunciations do not include a word that is used more than 500 times.
Someone who bothered to find out how to pronounce the words and names.
