A good follow up to the Big Short whereby the financial meltdown is explained in more depth and detail on a global level. If you are seeking to understand how the complexities of global finance affect economies around the world and how those economies are interdependent then this book takes a look at a large sampling from large to small. It delves into the incompetent money managers thinking and sheds light on the corrupt and morally bankrupt banks that took down governments, and more importantly it illustrates how the tax payers who had the misfortune of having lived in places where the power elites wrote themselves blank checks with other people's money. A great great read!!!
From start to finish this was an incredibly exciting peak behind the curtain of the most significant election in the nation's history. Game Change is an inside the circle of power account of how to choose the leader of the free world and simultaneously how to destroy the credibility and reputation of a national hero. The only thing bigger than the egos of the key players in this story are the stakes they are all vying for, the Presidency of the United States and all the power and responsibilities that come with it. Easily the best book of the year and worthy of Pulitzer consideration.
I thought this book told a very interesting story extremely well. It gives a certain level of insight that isn't available anyplace else. I also found the narration light and engaging with the changes in point of view which kept me listening even when the subject matter went off on a tangent. The story of the origins of ESPN were especially interesting along with the early days as the new kid on the block. I would recommend this book to all of my friends who love sports and like a good story.
