9780393338829: The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine

The #1 New York Times bestseller: "It is the work of our greatest financial journalist, at the top of his game. And it's essential reading."―Graydon Carter, Vanity Fair

The real story of the crash began in bizarre feeder markets where the sun doesn't shine and the SEC doesn't dare, or bother, to tread: the bond and real estate derivative markets where geeks invent impenetrable securities to profit from the misery of lower- and middle-class Americans who can't pay their debts. The smart people who understood what was or might be happening were paralyzed by hope and fear; in any case, they weren't talking.

Michael Lewis creates a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel to his #1 bestseller Liar's Poker. Out of a handful of unlikely-really unlikely-heroes, Lewis fashions a story as compelling and unusual as any of his earlier bestsellers, proving yet again that he is the finest and funniest chronicler of our time.

“Devastatingly funny.” ―New York
Moneyball

“The best business book Lewis has written. It may be the best business book anyone has written.” ―Mark Gerson, The Weekly Standard

“A brilliantly told tale. . . . Michael Lewis’s beautiful obsession with the idea of value has once again yielded gold.” ―Garry Trudeau
