It says chasing Goldman Sachs but in fact it does not give that much incite into Goldman Sachs during this period of time It talks about all the big investment firms. The Big Short is a much better read about this period in Wall Street. It is divided into two parts, I quit going into the second part.
If you need a book to put you to sleep than this is the one.

This book is very flawed. The best part is the dramatis personae at the beginning. McGee keeps referring to the "economy crashing" but never tells us exactly what that means----50% unemployment, 30% interest rates, etc.?
In other words, what is the botrtom line effect on the average Joe whose only connection with WS is a few shares of common and my 401 or pension fund.
Of the nearly 15 books I've listened to regarding the "crisis," this is clearly the biggest waste of time. I agree that "Too Big" and "Big Short" make a lot more sense.
I would short this book & go long on some of the others.
