About
The Book
The tsunami of cheap credit that rolled across the planet between 2002 and 2008 was more than a simple financial phenomenon: it was temptation, offering entire societies the chance to reveal aspects of their characters they could not normally afford to indulge. Michael Lewis travels to Germany, Greece, Ireland, Iceland and California to investigate the credit bubble in a brilliantly, sadly hilarious narrative.

What Chris Dixon says

This is the best book you can read to understand the global credit crisis. It’s a short book – just 5 chapters covering Iceland, Ireland, Germany, Greece, and California. What’s particularly fascinating is how each place had a wildly different reaction to the credit glut.
