Two of the main characters of the story frustrated me so much with their stupidity, bickering and stubbornness that only because I am a compulsive finisher did I get to the end of the story.
Eyeopening, shocking, disquieting
The explanation of how banking and the economy actually work.
Mark's narration brought the concepts and information presented into clear focus.
They really are out to get you.
This book has been on a shelf in my home for over 10 years and during that time I manged to read maybe the first 3 chapters. I'm so glad I found it on Audible and that it has been updated with information about the world's current economic situation. I've learned more about banking and the economy from this book than I did from my college economics and finance classes. Well worth the investment.
If a story in which the primary character is a naive dim bulb who repeatedly takes, what in my estimation are, idiotic, ignorant, short sighted actions, sounds interesting to you then this book might be right up your alley. Personally, I found myself repeatedly saying "idiot" out loud each time the central character did something ill advised or conceived and then had to deal with the consequences of her incompetence. In all fairness, I may not have fared any better in similar circumstances. Hopefully I'll never have to find out.
Had the author written the story with a central character who had a bit more understanding of life in general, this could have a much more enjoyable and interesting book.
