Editorial Reviews

This audiobook is a fascinating addition to Jesse Eisinger's and Jake Bernstein's Pulitzer prize-winning series on the 2008 financial crisis. Eisinger, a journalist, and Bernstein, a trader and future's analyst, are an unstoppable duo as they expose the truth behind the catastrophe. They illustrate just how the country's bankers pushed the economy into ruin and were all too happy to blame the public for the mess. Gary Dikeo's emphatic performance is perfect for this exposé. His deliberate pacing makes the complex financial analyses palatable.

Publisher's Summary

In the months before the 2008 financial meltdown, bankers and hedge funds perverted the market to keep their lavish bonuses flowing. Their machinations made the collapse much worse. This Pulitzer Prize-winning series reveals how they did it.

Sub Prime Mortgage Crisis For Dummies?

Perhaps I've already listened to too many of the Wall Street crash books but this short look at the crisis comes off as simplistic and repetitive. The narrator reads in something close a monotone; as if he was reading to an econ 101 college study group. If you're interested try something more along the lines of The Big Short or Reckless Endangerment.
