if you have read the big short by lewis don't bother reading this book as there is nothing new. if you have a choice between the two books go with michael lewis. he is a better writer and the narration is also better.
Ok story but nothing really special about the book ... Mitnick is somewhat delusional and has a bit of a persecution complex so it is hard to get behind the Mitnick as a victim theme.... It is also difficult to believe that someone supposedly as smart and clever as he portrays himself could make as many boneheaded mistakes as he did
by far the best audiobook i have listen to. i had seen various film versions of the story but have always been intimidated by length of the book or the 50 hour listen ..... the book is very different than the movie versions so seeing the movie will not ruin it for you ..... john lee really brings the book alive and the 50 hours flew by
if you ever want to hear what a book read by jim rome (the sports head) would sound like here is your chance. it is so painful to listen to i had to give up which is a shame because the book is pretty well written. it is a great story especially given what has happened to the global financial markets over the last several years. shame more of the market regulators and banks didn't learn anything from the experience
an incredible story, hard to believe it is nonfiction ...... i a know a number of the principals and their behavior as described by the author seems believable although i few people come off looking better than they should have (probably the people who gave the author the most access)...... the narrator mispronounces several terms and a couple of law firm names which is really distracting and embarrassing otherwise great listen
i little overly patriotic (as expected) but amazing story extremely well told ... hard to believe certain parts
great listen ..... except that the narrator does not know how to pronounce a few terms and firm names which is distracting otherwise another classic lewis
was really looking forward to this but very disappointed. lost me after an hour. one of worst i have ever downloaded
great subject beautifully delivered
