This is an excellent account of the 2008 financial crisis and the popping of the housing bubble in the US. Although many people have read and enjoyed The Big Short, I feel this book includes a greater range of characters into the lead up to the housing crisis and how we got there in the first place. And I still haven't found another book that goes into so much detail as to how John Paulson pulled together this life changing trade - when everyone told him to forget about it. If you really want know what it's like to go through a contrarian trade, and how to stick with it, then read this book.
This is the second time I've read it and I still couldn't stop reading it. Highly Recommend.
