Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Weekend That Changed Wall Street: An Eyewitness Account (Hardcover)
Ok, so it isn't all the car chases and explosions that we have all come to know and love in action adventure movies but it's hour by hour account of the efforts of the United States Treasury and four of the biggest investment banking firms in the world desperately trying to come up with a solution that staves off a global economic meltdown while keeping all those involves also satisfied is every bit as extremely compelling, riveting and exciting! Just like reading any book by Maria Bartiromo, it is like spending time with an old friend that you have known forever, it is that much of an "easy read". I can't tell you how many times I found myself enjoying this "story" so much that I had to stop and remind myself that this wasn't just a story but that everything in this book took place in real life. Also, just like in any first class movie you could view or thrilling novel you can read it has its "and the plot thickens" moment with the additional looming financial disaster in the form of the problems at one of the biggest insurance companies in the world about to add fuel to the economic fire. Maria, thank you for another great book. I know I can always always always count on any of your books to be A1, top-notch quality reading.
