Simply terrific. Easily the best of the post-crash financial books (Malcolm Gladwell)
Greg Zuckerman was the first to tell the world about John Paulson's sensational trade . . . He's written the definitive account of a strange and wonderful subplot of the financial crisis (Michael Lewis, author of Liar's Poker)
A must-read for anyone fascinated by financial madness (Mail on Sunday)
A forensic, read-in-one-sitting book (Sunday Times)
Extraordinary, excellent (Observer)
Zuckerman takes us to Wall Street's heart of darkness, where mushroomed a $1 trillion subprime mortgage market that only the few, the brave, the smart dared short. This is at once a great page-turner and a great illuminator of the market's crash. (John Heylar, co-author of Barbarians at the Gate)
Much, much more than a brilliant account of Paulson's trade of the century; this book also provides a highly enjoyable and lucid journey through the analytical and emotional maze that constituted the financial markets on the eve of the Great Recession. Compulsory reading. (Mohamed El-Erian, CEO of Pacific Investment Management Co and author of When Markets Collide)
A magnificent insider look at how Paulson and others profited off of subprime's demise... insightful and gripping. (Marketfolly.com)
