Read from March 20 to April 10, 2010

A very intriguing book that I couldn't put down. Mr. Lewis does an excellent job of describing what caused the financial melt down in 2008. By conducting countless interviews with key players in the industry, the reader is treated to a ecclectic mix of humor, incompetence, irrationality and the bizzare.

WARNING - There is plenty of naughty language in this book (as expected since it's based primarily on Wall Street traders' actions) and you may not think very highly of any major U.S. bank after reading.
