Michiko Kakutani when reviewing Lewis' books says,
"No one writes with more narrative panache about money and finance than Mr. Lewis. His entertaining new book does not attempt a macro view of the financial crisis, but instead proposes to open a small window on the calamities by recounting the stories of some savvy renegades who cashed in on their conviction that the system was rotten."
I had fun reading this book. A few times I even yelled out at a particularly incredulous portion of the story. I really wish Obama and his entire cabinet would read this and then take the criminals who cheated us all to task! Like how about putting a few of them behind bars and changing the way we regulate these crooks so it won't happen again. We got burned folks...
