This review is from: Crisis Economics: A Crash Course in the Future of Finance (Hardcover)
An insightful and accessible analysis of the causes and effects of the 2008 crisis. Put in some historical context (especially 1929) it also provides a general template for how crises are "made" and how they unfold. I specifically enjoyed the authors' straightforwardness about how's to blame - not in a populist way, but they do explain how the FED, Congress and others contributed to the situation, not shying away from mentioning specific persons and their (in retrospect amazingly shortsighted) views or comments on markets.
