House of Cards by William D. Cohan

House of Cards does more than recount the incredible panic of the first stages of the financial meltdown. William D. Cohan beautifully demonstrates why the seemingly invincible Wall Street money machine came crashing down.

Read Los Angeles Times, New York Times, The New York Observer, and Chicago Tribune reviews to learn more about this noteworthy book. Cohan talks to Steve Inskeep about the fall of Bear Stearns and one of the figures in the center of it all: then-Chairman Jimmy Cayne on NPR’s Morning Edition. Check out an Op-Ed by Cohan entitled, “A Tsunami of Excuses” in the New York Times. Lastly, read a Q&A with Cohan in The Crime Report

Mark your calendars for Thursday, April 9th, when William D. Cohan will appear on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to discuss House of Cards.
