Synopsis

From the jungles of the trading floor to the casinos of Las Vegas, The Big Short, Michael Lewis' No.1 bestseller, tells the outrageous story of the misfits, renegades and visionaries who saw that the biggest credit bubble of all time was about to burst, bet against the banking system - and made a killing. "In the hands of Michael Lewis, anything is possible...if you want to know how a nation lost its financial mind - and have a good laugh finding out - this is the book to read." (Sunday Times). "Magnificent...a perfect storm of brilliant writer meeting big subject." (Guardian). "A triumph...riveting...The Big Short reads like a thriller." (The Times). "A terrifying story, superbly well told." (Daily Telegraph). "A rollicking good yarn." (Financial Times). "Probably the single best piece of financial journalism ever written."(Reuters).
