This book provided all of the logic and strategy of those shorting the financial market over the past few years. For a financial outsider, I thought the level of detail proved to be just enough to truly understand what happened. The indiviual profiles were an amazing way to chronicle the market. If you're choosing books, I'd recommend "The Zeroes" first which details the rise, then "The Big Short".
Business as usual

I'm easily bored but I couldnt put this book down. Hard to understand the financial instruments, but the real story is that there really was nothing illegal, just highly unethical. But that never stops people from making money. Just smart money taking advantage of dumb money and people who are to stupid to take care of their finanaces. Business as usual.
Nice read, good material
