Too Big to Fail

www.amazon.com/Too-B..
Category: Books

A real-life thriller about the most tumultuous period in America’s financial history by an acclaimed New York Times Reporter Andrew Ross Sorkin delivers the first true behind-the-scenes, moment-by-moment account of how the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression developed into a global tsunami. From inside the corner office at Lehman Brothers to secret meetings in South Korea, and the corridors of Washington, Too Big to Fail is the definitive story of the most powerful men and women in finance and politics grappling with success and failure, ego and greed, and, ultimately, the fate of the world’s economy. “We’ve got to get some foam down on the runway!” a sleepless Timothy Geithner, the then-president of the Federal Reserve of New York, would tell Henry M. Paulson, the Treasury secretary, about the catastrophic crash the world’s financial system would experience. Through unprecedented access to the players involved, Too Big to Fail re-creates all the drama and turmoil, revealing never disclosed details and elucidating how decisions made on Wall Street over the past decade sowed the seeds of the debacle. This true story is not just a look at banks that were “too big to fail,” it is a real-life thriller with a cast of bold-faced names who themselves thought they were too big to fail.

Very educational
This is a good view on the happenings of 2008 from the perspective of the government. They don't make it as bad as it really was, but you can get a good sense of what the different groups were dealing with. Also the actors performance wasn't bad. I liked the actors they picked and the performance by them. Definitely a great movie that I would recommend!

Invaluable to learn from the past.
This book goes into great detail about the major players in the financial collapse of 2008. The author must have done thousands of hours of research. I actually sort of felt sorry for Dick Fuld, until a little later in the book when you realized how clueless and delusional he really was. Everything you saw on CNBC and the news during the meltdown is probably mentioned somewhere in this book. A great lesson in history, and will prepare you for the next time.
