Publisher's Summary

This is a summary of Michael Lewis' The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine
The real story of the crash began in bizarre feeder markets where the sun doesn't shine and the SEC doesn't dare, or bother, to tread: the bond and real estate derivative markets where geeks invent impenetrable securities to profit from the misery of lower - and middle - class Americans who can't pay their debts. The smart people who understood what was or might be happening were paralyzed by hope and fear; in any case, they weren't talking.
Michael Lewis creates a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel to his best-seller Liar's Poker. Out of a handful of unlikely - really unlikely - heroes, Lewis fashions a story as compelling and unusual as any of his earlier best-sellers, proving yet again that he is the finest and funniest chronicler of our time.
This summary is aimed for those who want to capture the gist of the book but don't have the current time to listen to the whole thing. You get the main summary along with all of the benefits and lessons the actual book has to offer.
Ant Hive Media reads every chapter, extracts the understanding and leaves you with a new perspective and time to spare. We do the work so you can understand the book in minutes, not hours.
