The Big Short by Michael Lewis
If you haven't gotten the chance to read The Big Short yet, you're behind. The movie doesn't do the book justice. It's well written (although I am biased with Lewis' writings) and makes you grow anxious to learn more about the biggest financial crisis the United States has ever experienced. Although the dark time sent life-changing waves of shock to millions of Americans, the book is comical and keeps you laughing at the absurd things these millionaires (frauds) were saying, doing.
Although I said the movie doesn't do the book justice, the movie is excellent. Starring Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt, Paramount Pictures produced a movie that depicted the downfall of the American economy.
