Too Big to Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System--And Themselves (Updated)

By Andrew Ross Sorkin
Brand New for 2018: an updated edition featuring a new afterword to mark the 10th anniversary of the financial crisis

The brilliantly reported New York Times bestseller that goes behind the scenes of the financial crisis on Wall Street and in Washington to give the definitive account of the crisis, the basis for the HBO film

"Too Big To Fail is too good to put down. . . . It is the story of the actors in the most extraordinary financial spectacle in 80 years, and it is told brilliantly." --The Economist

In one of the most gripping financial narratives in decades, Andrew Ross Sorkin--a New York Times columnist and one of the country's most respected financial reporters--delivers the first definitive blow-by-blow account of the epochal economic crisis that brought the world to the brink. Through unprecedented access to the players involved, he re-creates all the drama and turmoil of these turbulent days, revealing never-before-disclosed details and recounting how, motivated as often by ego and greed as by fear and self-preservation, the most powerful men and women in finance and politics decided the fate of the world's economy.
