The Book of Thieves is a fairy-tale flavored retelling of how the biggest gangsters and thieves in the land of Oblivion managed to set up a political and economic system that enabled one of the greatest crimes in history. Fox's story provides a quick, simplified recap of the recent mortgage crisis and a perspective on just how one creates an environment where something so terrible can happen. She writes clearly and has an entertaining and darkly humorous edge to her voice that matches the way she's chosen to tell this true crime story. Just in case you're wondering, Appendix C contains an optional Fairy Tale Happy Ending where the villains get their due and justice is served!

Anyone who works in the financial regulatory sector will be startled by this author's suggestion that the regulations be scrapped. The author advocates that new laws be made, saying that the current system is far too convoluted, complex, and an invitation to fraud. The author has done a good thing by speaking out against this.

The Book of Thieves is the story of the economic collapse of 2008 disguised as a morality tale. Stephanie C. Fox methodically explains the reasons behind the financial catastrophe that is still being felt. There are no good guys in this story. What's most striking is the failure of the political system. Fox, a lawyer, correctly points out that the citizenry assumed there were laws and regulations in place to protect the country and to shield them from harm, but in both cases, the laws protected lenders and not borrowers. As an Observer, my only quibble with this tale is that the Altruists (Democrats) must share equally in the blame with the Grabbers (Republicans). Well done, Stephanie.
