    Sheila Bair is widely acknowledged in government circles and the media as one of the first people to identify and accurately assess the subprime crisis. Appointed by George W. Bush as the chairperson of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in 2006, she witnessed the origins of the financial crisis and, in 2008, became - along with Hank Paulson, Ben Bernanke, and Timothy Geithner-one of the key players invested in repairing the damage to our economy.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have been a pretty big Sheila Bair fan. I admire her for trying to swim against the tide that she felt was wrong. I have read several books relating to the great recession but thought that I might gain some additional insights by hearing her unique insiders perspective. This book is much long in the tooth on her and short on insights. The writing style suffers from an attempt to be overly rich in style. The book would read better if every other adjective at random were removed. I don't really care "HOW" she picked up her coffee!

    In full disclosure. I sufferred through 40 min of chapter one, 5 min of 2. 3 min of 3 and 4 and 5 and gave up. It may get better.

    The primary thrust seems to be Sheila Bair - Super Woman. Everyone else - bad.
