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.
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
