The Big Short

The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine by Michael Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’m not sure what else can be said about this book that you haven’t already heard. A blistering critique of the very fabric that Wall Street is built on, The Big Short made me want to drive up to New York and start punching these Wall Street assholes in the nuts. It is amazing that this stuff is allowed to go on, and that, in essence, everyone involved got away not only scot-free, but got away ridiculously well compensated as well. And worse yet, there has been virtually no change to the culture up there that allows this stuff to go on. One can only hope that people in power read this book and start to demand changes, because we can’t allow this to continue.
In other words, another great book by Michael Lewis.
Next up is The Ghost Brigades by John Scalzi.
