You cannot judge a book by its length. Andrew Ross Sorkin’s Too Big To Fail about the events before and after the collapase of Lehman Brothers, which triggered the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, is a thick book, 544 pages! But don’t let that fool you- there are no annual reports or pages of fine print or lengthy debates about structured assets. Instead, this is a book about fascinating characters. Who needs the Real Housewives of New York when you have the Real Hubris of Wall Street. Recently I had a chance to talk to Andrew, who edits the NYT’s Dealbook, about where we are now and lessons learned.
