Overview

The End of Wall Street by Roger Lowenstein

With razor-sharp insight, bestselling author Roger Lowenstein tells the full story of the end of Wall Street as we knew it.

Roger Lowenstein's The End of Wall Street unfurls a gripping chronicle of the 2008 financial collapse, drawing on 180 interviews with top government officials and Wall Street CEOs. Lowenstein looks to the roots of the crisis to reveal how America succumbed to the siren song of easy debt and speculative mortgages. Combining deep analysis with sizzling narrative, The End of Wall Street charts the end of an era of unprecedented and unwarranted optimism while looking ahead to the legacy of the bailout.

This is a blow by blow account of how Wall Street got itself into its latest mess and how it then tumbled and fell on all of us. Because it's written by a former Wall Street Journal writer, it's well written and isn't overly technical. In fact, it reads rather like a thriller. I read it over a period of two days--couldn't put it down until I'd finished it. Enjoy!

I would love to read this book, but alas the sample for the Nook is only 27 pages long and only introduces the players. Come on B&N or Penguin Group you gotta give me something more than that before I am going to spend $10 on it. I love his articles that appear in magazines and newspapers all over the nation, however I need (especially in today's economic times) a little more of a taste.
