I have found no better explanation of issues in the financial services industry (and its regulation) in recent times. The authors move briskly between relevant history, summaries of the Act's provisions, and commentary, highlighting weak spots. The familiar names, Lehman, AIG, etc., appear alongside the Act's attempted fixes. I think it needful, going in, to be reasonably literate in the terminology, concepts, the main players, and the basic narrative of recent years. It is too dense (though clear) to be a starter on these topics. For a more beginning listener, I would recommend "Managed by the Markets."
