Shortlisted for the BBC Samuel Johnson Prize 2010 Andrew Ross Sorkin delivers the first true behind-the-scenes, moment-by-moment , account of how the greatest financial crisis since the Great Depression developed into a global tsunami. From inside the corner office at Lehman Brothers to secret meetings in South Korea, Russia and the corridors of Washington, "Too Big to Fail" is the definitive story of the most powerful men and women in finance and politics grappling with success and failure, ego, greed, and, ultimately, the fate of the world's economy. 'We've got to get some foam down on the runway' a sleepless Timothy Geithner, the president of the Federal Reserve of New York would tell Henry M.Paulson, the Treasury Secretary about the catastrophic crash of the world's financial system would experience. Through unprecendented access to the players involved, "Too Big to Fail" recreates all the drama and turmoil, revealing never-disclosed details and elucidating how decisions made on Wall Street over the past decade sowed the seeds of the debacle. This true story is not just a look at banks that were 'too big to fail', it is a real-life thriller about a cast of bold-faced names who themselves thought they were 'too big to fail'.
"Many books have been written about the financial crisis in 2008. Pages and pages describing the events that started with the crisis of Bear Sterns and ended with Lehman’s bankruptcy, AIG being saved, big firms merging and a historic TARP program to provide liquidity to the major banks in Wall Street. All these events developed in the middle of a global panic and fear of big names coming down.
It is a hard book to read, but also provides a very good timeline of events and discussions that led to the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression."
