A waste of time (reading it) and money. There's absolutely zero content around the details of the trade: both the due diligence and the execution phase. Just pages and pages of gossip, describing the emotional ups and downs of the fund managers and investors who were betting against mortgages and CDOs around the nation. The color around lavish lifestyles, atypical characters, and mood swings are 99% of the book. You won't learn anything more than you already know from the TV coverage of Goldman's scandal. No book to learn something, nor to be entertained. Highly repetitive, the 20 pages of content are stretched to 300 pages.
