    What did you love best about The Goal?

    Not only does the story have some very valuable information within is, especially for those of us working in quality control, but the narration was amazing. This was the first audio book I have listened to that was more of a play than simply having it read aloud.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had enough time to listen to it in one sitting, I would have.

    In Reckless Endangerment, Gretchen Morgenson, the star business columnist of The New York Times, exposes how the watchdogs who were supposed to protect the country from financial harm were actually complicit in the actions that finally blew up the American economy.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a great book with some good insight to the Financial Crisis. Although I did enjoy Sorkin's Too Big To Fail, Reckless Endangerment takes a look at the push from the government (including Dodd & Frank) for affordable housing. If you have read/listened to other Financial Crisis books and enjoyed them, add this to your list, you will enjoy it.


    What other book might you compare Reckless Endangerment to and why?

    Too Big To Fail
