    In 2006, hedge fund manager John Paulson realized something few others suspected--that the housing market and the value of subprime mortgages were grossly inflated and headed for a major fall. Paulson's background was in mergers and acquisitions, however, and he knew little about real estate or how to wager against housing. He had spent a career as an also-ran on Wall Street. But Paulson was convinced this was his chance to make his mark. He just wasn't sure how to do it....

    Overall

    Listening to this story captivated my weekend, I got sucked in and could not detach myself from my iPod.
    I had been a keen observer of the sub prime meltdown, but now I see so much more of the background, rationale and to a certain extent the culprits to this hideous crime that has scarred so much of the US social landscape.
    To see the blindness shown by so many to the looming disaster seems easy with 20/20 hindsight, I only hope that more people read this to appreciate the madness that pervaded this event in our history.
    The book is brilliant - well read and excellently written - top marks.
