Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:
In the tradition of Michael Lewis s blockbusters "Moneyball" and "The Blind Side," the Encore edition of the #1 "New York Times" bestseller and one of the best business books of the past two decades ("The New York Times") will tie in with the upcoming feature film starring Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, and Steve Carell.
When the crash of the US stock market became public knowledge in the fall of 2008, it was already old news. The real story of the crash began the previous year in bizarre feeder markets where the sun doesn t shine and the SEC doesn t dare, or bother, to tread: the bond and real estate derivative markets where geeks invent impenetrable securities to profit from the misery of lower and middle-class Americans who can t pay their debts. The smart people who understood what was or might be happening were paralyzed by hope and fear; in any case, they weren t talking.
Michael Lewis creates a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel to his #1 bestseller "Liar s Poker." Out of a handful of unlikely heroes, Lewis fashions a story as compelling and unusual as any of his earlier bestsellers, proving yet again that he is the finest and funniest chronicler of our time."

Notă biografică

Michael Lewis's global bestselling books lift the lid on the biggest stories of our times. They include Flash Boys, a game-changing exposé of high-speed scamming; The Big Short, which was made into a hit Oscar-winning film; Moneyball, the story of a maverick outsider who beat the system; and Liar's Poker, the book that defined the excesses of the 1980s. Michael Lewis was born in New Orleans and educated at Princeton University and the London School of Economics.


It's time to throw another tank of petrol on the Wall Street pyre, as only Lewis can
He is so good everyone else may as well pack up
No one writes with more narrative panache about money and finance than Mr. Lewis
Probably the single best piece of financial journalism ever written
Hugely entertaining
Terrifying and superbly told
Compelling and horrifying
A more than worthy successor to Liar's Poker ... if you want to know about the origins of the credit crunch, and the extraordinary cast of misfits, visionaries and chancers who made money from the crash, there's no more readable account
A triumph ... riveting ... a genuine page-turner
The very best book about this whole affair
If you read only one book about the causes of the recent financial crisis, let it be Michael Lewis's The Big Short
In the hands of Michael Lewis, anything is possible ... if you want to know how a nation lost its financial mind - and have a good laugh finding out - this is the book to read.
Magnificent ... a perfect storm of brilliant writer meeting big subject.
