Customer Review

on 13 October 2011
This book is not supposed to be a full-blown explanation of why things went wrong --there are plenty of those already: probably too many. It's a tour through the wreckage of what's left, pointing out some of the absurdities that have been beached after the idiocy of the financial high-tide went out. It succeeds admirably in making its points -- and mixes pathos with anger and a gentle prodding that would be nothing more than open ridicule in the hands of a lesser writer. Lewis is never crudely contemptuous of the people he meets but he leaves you in no doubt as to his opinion. He has captured the essence of stupidity in vignettes of the causes of the crisis and make generalities from individual examples that then make wider sense. What's wrong with collecting magazine articles into a book when they are as good as this -- and as one reviewer has already observed, leaves you wanting more?
