Description

Autumn 2008. The world's finances collapse but one man makes a killing. John Paulson, a softly spoken hedge-fund manager who still took the bus to work, seemed unlikely to stake his career on one big gamble. This title tells the story of the trader John Paulson who predicted the economic crash in 2008 - and made the biggest windfall in history.

Simply terrific. Easily the best of the post-crash financial books

Greg Zuckerman was the first to tell the world about John Paulson's sensational trade . . . He's written the definitive account of a strange and wonderful subplot of the financial crisis

A must-read for anyone fascinated by financial madness

A forensic, read-in-one-sitting book

Extraordinary, excellent

Compelling

Zuckerman takes us to Wall Street's heart of darkness, where mushroomed a $1 trillion subprime mortgage market that only the few, the brave, the smart dared short. This is at once a great page-turner and a great illuminator of the market's crash.

Much, much more than a brilliant account of Paulson's trade of the century; this book also provides a highly enjoyable and lucid journey through the analytical and emotional maze that constituted the financial markets on the eve of the Great Recession. Compulsory reading.

A magnificent insider look at how Paulson and others profited off of subprime's demise... insightful and gripping.
