2016 Books: The Big Short

The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine by Michael Lewis
W.W. Norton & Company, 2010
264 p.

In this book - the source material for the movie of the same name - Lewis does a really incredible job of explaining the subprime mortgage crisis in a way that both makes sense and is narratively interesting, while not (so far as I could tell) oversimplifying things to a harmful degree. This is a crazy true story, and I couldn't put it down and also felt smarter at the end of it.
