    The tsunami of cheap credit that rolled across the planet between 2002 and 2008 was more than a simple financial phenomenon: it was temptation, offering entire societies the chance to reveal aspects of their characters they could not normally afford to indulge. The Greeks wanted to turn their country into a pinata stuffed with cash and allow as many citizens as possible to take a whack at it. The Germans wanted to be even more German; the Irish wanted to stop being Irish.

    Story

    Well if you were not, you will be after you listen to Boomerang. As a fan of prior books of Michael Lewis I decided to give this one a shot. It was done almost along side of The Big Short and fills in a lot of the story of what was going on around the globe while in America we had our financial crisis going on. I actually understand now what is happening to Greece and other EU countries much more deeply and why it is more serious than I initially thought because of this book.

    It was very interesting, sometimes witty, sometimes tongue in cheek but always on point. There were no slow spots in the book and it was well narrated. I recommend this to anyone whether your into world finance or not!
