The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine - Michael Lewis Fascinating; read like a fast-paced thriller at times (I even stayed up well past my bedtime at one point). This looks at the global financial crisis from the point of view of a few oddball characters who bet on it happening and did very well out of being right. I didn't think this did quite as good a job of explaining the complex financial instruments in play as did [b:Liar's Poker|1171|Liar's Poker|Michael Lewis|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1309285703s/1171.jpg|855103], or maybe they're just that much harder to understand.
