Book Review- The Big Short

I have read a lot of articles and seen a lot of TV on the bursting of the housing bubble but no one explained it better than Micheal Lewis.  The book tells the true story of how some people made huge profits for predicting the fall of the housing market.  It shows how blind greed can make us, but exactly why i recommend more people read this book.  The devastating effects of what happened will be lingering for a long time and have deeply altered all of our lives.  If nothing else read this short book as a history lesson, and to have some knowledge for what really happened here that may have cost you to lose your house, your job, or faith in economics.  In today's world there countless news stories everyday that are always at our fingertips it is so easy to forget what happened a year, or two years ago, even more-so not realize the lingering impact one story will have not only on our lives but the lives of generations to come.  If you venture to learn more about a story than just a headline check out this book.
