    When Genius Failed is the cautionary financial tale of our time, the gripping saga of what happened when an elite group of investors believed they could actually deconstruct risk and use virtually limitless leverage to create limitless wealth. In Roger Lowenstein's hands, it is a brilliant tale peppered with fast money, vivid characters, and high drama.

    Pankaj says: "Informative and interesting, full of suspense"
    "Good, but not great"

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

    I would only recommend this too people who are interested in the details of what happens on Wall Street. The reading of this book was well done, and the story was fine, but it was too narrowly focused for me to enjoy as much as I have other books about Wall Street.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Learning about arbitrage, leverage, and credit during market turmoil.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When LTCM had made obscene returns and started investing in areas they had no business touching.


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

    No, I had to make myself finish it.
