A Gift For Storytelling

If it's hard for you to imagine laughing out loud while reading a book on the subprime mortgage crisis, you're probably not alone. But Michael Lewis has a gift for storytelling and in The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine he manages to make the mess understandable, readable, and yes, even enjoyable. Lewis follows the key players who predicted the housing crash, explaining how they saw what nearly all of Wall Street did not. In clear terms, he explains the process of how bad loans got repackaged into bonds and sold off to unsuspecting investors. - excerpt from A Crash Course on the World Financial Crisis, Courtesy of Michael Lewis, Everyday Ebook
