By the time Neil Barofsky retired as U.S. Inspector General in 2011, he had gained a reputation as one of the most talented, courageous, and active political officials in Washington. He was also one of the most frustrated: As the designated watchdog over $700 billion in TARP spending, he had fought a tireless uphill battle against Treasury officials, especially Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner. In Bailout, he provides a searing account of his high-level experiences in the Bush and Obama administrations. Candid and hard-hitting, this book qualifies as an exceptionally informative insider's account of what went wrong during the Great Recession rescue.
