    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

    I have either read or listened to all of Michael Lewis' books. His latest book, Boomerang,, clearly outlines the problem with international debt and the potential exposure it could have for US banks. If he is right, it will make the mortage crisis look like a petty cash default for the banks.

    From the internationally best-selling author of Kane and Abel and A Prisoner of Birth comes Only Time Will Tell, the first in an ambitious new series that tells the story of one family across generations, across oceans, from heartbreak to triumph. The epic tale of Harry Clifton’s life begins in 1920, with the words "I was told that my father was killed in the war"....

    C. Johnson says: "Standard Archer "class-clash". Stellar narration!!"
    "Jeffrey Archer is one of my favorite authors"

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    "Bill O'Reilly is not the Best Author on Lincoln"

    Story

    Although I enjoyed the book, there was nothing new in my understanding of the Lincoln murder. There have been a variety of other authors that I have read, that provide a more comprehensible analysis of the capture on John Willkes Booth and the subsequent trial of the other conspirators.
