  1.  Great read if you want to learn about the big housing scam 10 April, 2013 On
    Michael Lewis has done it again. He has done great research on this book. After reading this book you will realize how the big shots game the system and how the middle class burns the finger while they come out unscathed. I really like how he has been able to write about such a serious subject and still be entertaining.
