really liked it

Excellent dissection of the events and people that led to the 2008 economic collapse of Wall Street. Lowenstein maps out in plain, no-nonsense prose exactly what happened and who the culprits were. I found his writing style to be very easy to read as Lowenstein writes for the common person. In other words, you don't need to be a banker or posses an MBA degree to understand this book. Before reading this, I had no clue exactly what led to the financial crisis of '08, but after breezing through those 20 chapters, I now fully understand the roles that the investment bankers, the CEOs, the mortgage lending companies, and the treasury department all played in this complicated game. I definitely recommend this for anyone who wants more insight into the 2008 scandal, as well as how Wall Street functions in relationship to the investment banks in general.
