“The book is as alarming as it is comprehensive, but it’s also gripping. The unfolding of the financial crisis makes for thrilling drama in Eisinger’s hands, heightened by the anxiety still felt by all who survived it. He’s even able to make white-collar courtroom proceedings and investigations into tax shelters sparkle.…This book is a wakeup call, delivered calmly yet with no shortage of well-reasoned urgency, to a nation whose democratic traditions are being undermined by backroom dealing, deregulation, and the consolidation of corporate power. It’s a chilling read, and a needed one.”—NPR.org
