The Big Short
NY, Norton, (2010). Inscribed first edition of the author's scathing analysis of the factors that combined to create what we now call "The Great Recession." Lewis, the author of Moneyball and Liar's Poker, is the most accessible and among the most knowledgeable writers on financial subjects in this country, and his delineation of the events behind the financial collapse of 2008 led to this book first becoming a bestseller, in spite of its rather abstruse subject matter, and later the basis of a well-received, star-laden (Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, Christian Bale) movie. Copies of the first edition are somewhat uncommon; signed copies are decidedly so. Tiny corner taps and a small smudge on the front board; near fine in a fine dust jacket. [#032800] SOLD
