Interesting but I think there are better books about the crisis. I would say Simon Johnson's "13 Bankers" is my favorite.
What makes this book outstanding are the proposals for solutions at the end. She has practical ideas of how the system could be better. They are practical -- but unfortunately not with the current influence the large banks have on regulation today.
A must-read for anybody who lived through the recent financial crises or hopes to survive the next one. Sheila Bair knows where the bodies are buried and writes a compelling story in an easy-to-follow style. Alibris in an excellent eSeller, too.
