The greatest trade ever is the thrilling story of the trader john paulson who predicted the economic crash in 2008- and made the biggest windfall in history, by gregory zuckerman. Autumn 2008. The world's finances collapse but one man makes a killing. John paulson, a softly spoken hedge-fund manager who still took the bus to work, seemed unlikely to stake his career on one big gamble. But he did - and the greatest trade ever is the story of how he realised that the sub-prime housing bubble was going to burst, making $15 billion for his fund and more than $4 billion for himself in a single year. It's a tale of folly and wizardry, individual brilliance versus institutional stupidity. John paulson made the biggest winning bet in history. And this is how he did it.

About the Author:

GREGORY ZUCKERMAN is a senior writer at the Wall Street Journal, where he has been a reporter for twelve years. He pens the widely read “Heard on the Street” column and writes about hedge funds, investing, and other Wall Street topics. Zuckerman appears on CNBC twice a week to explain complex trades. He is a two-time winner of the Gerald Loeb Award for coverage of the credit crisis, the demise of WorldCom, and the collapse of hedge fund Amaranth Advisors, and he is a recipient of other awards. 

From AudioFile:

John Paulson took home $4 billion in 2007 as his share of the deals his firm made in anticipation of a mortgage crisis. Wall Street Journal reporter Gregory Zuckerman profiles Paulson and others who saw the economic disaster coming. Narrator Marc Cashman reads with a blend of sound journalism and admiring astonishment as Zuckerman casts Paulson as an underdog of high finance. That part might be an exaggeration--Paulson was savvy enough to see what others missed and had enough money to place bets that would reap billions--but Zuckerman's detailed analysis of Paulson's thought processes provides a valuable look at financial indicators that should interest any investor. J.A.S. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
