About this book
From the author of "Liar's Poker" and "The Big Short", this is the laugh-out-loud tale of Europe in meltdown, now in paperback. 'Michael Lewis's bravura journey through Europe's economic underbelly brilliantly charts the consequences of a world plagued by debt...highly enjoyable...nicely politically incorrect, often very funny, and shot through with genuine insight' Robert Harris, "Sunday Times". *Also appeared in June Buyer's Notes*
Europe is in serious financial chaos. In Greece, infrastructure costs mean it would be cheaper to transport all Greek rail passengers by taxi. In Iceland, Range Rovers frequently explode as owners collect the insurance to pay for them. The author deals with the subject of how the financial meltdown hit us all in the face.
