Micheal Lewis is a great writer. This books takes you behind the scenes of the financial crisis over home loans that culminated in 2008. It shows how so many idiots fooled themselves into thinking that they could continue to fleece investors. What's so pitiful is how some of the brokerage houses fleeced investors on the way up and then again on the way down. If you don't think we need financial regulation in this country to keep this from happening again, read this book.
