Really interesting. Binelli writes a little bit like Michael Lewis, but he's funnier, and he doesn't fall in love with his interview subjects.

That being said, there were a couple of horrible typos in here -- things that really made me question the accuracy of the whole enterprise:

Referring to a quit-claim deed as a "quick-claim deed" (page 193) and

Confusing the Winans family with the Wayans family (page 292).
