Up until now, The Big Short was my favorite audiobook, this tops it. Lewis's dry humor and fantastic use of irony almost makes you forget just how scary the underlying premise is. I wish the book was twice as long as I hated to have it end.
This is the 4th book I have listened to on the market meltdown of 2008 and this is by far the best. The others focused on the downturn from the perspective of a particular firm while this one gave detailed descriptions of the events that led to it. Clearly, Sorkin has gotten incredible access to the big players both in the government and the private sector to put together an absoltuely riveting book. I have listened to a long list of books on the economy and finance and this is by far my favorite. It's a great listen.
