The First Book from n+1—an Essential Chronicle of Our Financial Crisis

HFM: Where are you going to buy protection on the U.S. government's credit? I mean, if the U.S. defaults, what bank is going to be able to make good on that contract? Who are you going to buy that contract from, the Martians?

n+1: When does this begin to feel like less of a cyclical thing, like the weather, and more of a permanent, end-of-the-world kind of thing?

HFM: When you see me selling apples out on the street, that's when you should go stock up on guns and ammunition.

Review:

""Diary of a Very Bad Year" takes the first steps toward putting a human face on the funds."--"Newsweek"

""Diary of a Very Bad Year" does something few of the books written about the crisis have accomplished: It delivers an insider perspective on the events in real time, rather than dwelling on conclusions reached after the fact."--"BusinessWeek"

"A wonderful book. "Diary of a Very Bad Year" is a fascinating commentary on the crisis and a great read."--David Backus, Professor of Economics and Finance, NYU's Stern School of Business

""n+1" (in the person of Keith Gessen) lends an outsider's ear to the brilliant disquisitions of a guy caught in the middle of it all. . . . Excellent reading. . . . Compelling."--"The Millions"

""Diary of a Very Bad Year" is a rarity: a book on modern finance that's both extraordinarily thoughtful and enormously entertaining."--James Surowiecki, author of "The Wisdom of Crowds"

My favorite book written about the financial crisis. . . . Highly recommended. --Ezra Klein, "The Washington Post""

"Diary of a Very Bad Year" is a rarity: a book on modern finance that s both extraordinarily thoughtful and enormously entertaining. --James Surowiecki, author of "The Wisdom of Crowds""

Eminently readable. . . . Always engaging. . . . Although it is not fiction, "Diary of a Very Bad Year" is, in its own way, an attempt to bridge the gulf between the literary and financial worlds. --"Financial Times""

"Diary of a Very Bad Year" does something few of the books written about the crisis have accomplished: It delivers an insider perspective on the events in real time, rather than dwelling on conclusions reached after the fact. --"BusinessWeek""

HFM does a good job of teaching the reader how mortgage-backed paper, money-market funds, and credit-default swaps work, while offering up juicier tidbits about the ethics and legalities of his sector. --"Time Out New York""
