It is a chronological re-telling of events related to the financial crisis of 2007-2008, from when Paulson took the reins at Treasury in July 2006, till the end of the Bush Administration in January 2010.

I enjoyed his re-telling of events, especially when he recounted conversations with all the major poltical and business players involved, everyone from Warren Buffett to Sarah Palin.

It was a good summary of events, from a new perspective, though at times it felt a bit neutered. Since Paulson is speaking about so many politically sensitive topics, it's understandable that he self-censored.
