Synopsis

Number 1 International Bestseller.

"It’s not easy to stand apart from mass hysteria - to believe that most of what’s in the financial news is wrong, to believe that the most important financial people are either lying or deluded - without being insane."

From the jungles of the trading floor to the casinos of Las Vegas, The Big Short, Michael Lewis's No.1 bestseller, tells the 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.
