This is the best book on the financial crisis that I have seen so far––and I have read a few. It is very clear, with sufficient detail so that most readers with any competence in economic and business matters can understand the individual facets of the issues that he covers. For each facet, he makes recommendations for what can be done to prevent recurrences of such a crisis in the future, something that few of the many observers of the crisis have been able to do convincingly.
