A witty and fun analysis
I enjoyed this book because I found it exceptionally witty and funny, but to a laymen in financial sector, some of the concept such as hedge fund derrivitives and Credit Default Swaps can be confusing, but it's analysis is still wonderful and insightful, highly diggestible, entertaining and concise essay.

Deliciously sarcastic and deadpan!!!!!
This book is hilarious. Delicious sarcasm at well-deserved targets oozes from every (I would say page but it's an audiobook.) I have listened to several books on "Why did the financial meltdown happen?" and this is hands down the most entertaining. The only drawback is the narrator was kind of monotone and in my opinion didn't use the proper inflection to emphasize the right words and underscore the snark. I have heard the author of this book on podcasts, and wish the author had narrated the book himself. He would have known where to pause for just the right effect and what words to emphasize.
