Henry Paulson knew intense pressure. Even before becoming U.S. Treasury Secretary in May 2006, he had presided as CEO over Goldman Sachs, one of the world's largest investment banking and securities firm. But whatever crises he had known before were dwarfed by urgency of the Great Recession that cascaded down on the world in 2008-2009. In this detailed, temperate memoir, Paulson describes the rapidly spreading disaster from the inside, explaining how he and his staff attempted to stem crises involving Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac; Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, and others in an increasingly urgent situation. Now in paperback and NOOKbook.
