My opinion is that I just "read" the Financial History class that everyone should go through. If you want to understand the interplay between politics and finance, this is the book for you. If you want to understand what happened to the market and what can happen, this is the book for you. The author went to great lengths to explain the underlying terms that define the markets and the narrator made it easy to listen to this book for a long time. Well done.

This is a valuable contribution to understanding the meltdown of the financial sector and the challenges in putting it right again (including getting regulation right...which Congress seems incapable of handling).
HOWEVER, the narrator is unquestionably THE WORST I have ever encountered in over 300 books (and there have been a number of poor narrators). Synnestvedt's narration sounds like he is, in turns pleased, relieved and proud to reach the end of EVERY sentence. The narration becomes so annoying, even painful, to listen to that the underlying content is diminished.
