Product description


"Comprehensive and chilling."

". . . His action scenes are intimate and engaging."
--The New Yorker

"Sorkin's prodigious reporting and lively writing put the reader in the room for some of the biggest-dollar conference calls in history. It's an entertaining book, brisk book . . . Sorkin skillfully captures the raucous enthusiasm and riotous greed that fueled this rational irrationality."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Brings the drama alive with unusual inside access and compelling detail . . . A deeply researched account of the financial meltdown.

"Meticulously researched . . . told brilliantly. Other blow-by-blow accounts are in the works. It is hard to imagine them being this riveting."
--The Economist

"Sorkin's densely detailed and astonishing narrative of the epic financial crisis of 2008 is an extraordinary achievement that will be hard to surpass as the definitive account . . . as a dramatic close-up, his book is hard to beat."
--Financial Times

"Sorkin's book, like its author, is a phenom . . . an absolute tour de force."
--The American Prospect

"Andrew Ross Sorkin pens what may be the definitive history of the banking crisis."
--The Atlantic Monthly

"Andrew Ross Sorkin has written a fascinating, scene-by-scene saga of the eyeless trying to march the clueless through Great Depression II."
--Tom Wolfe

"Sorkin has succeeded in writing the book of the crisis, with amazing levels of detail and access."

"Sorkin can write. His storytelling makes Liar's Poker look like a children's book."
--SNL Financial
