Review:

"Lowenstein, a magnificent business writer, creates an almost novelistic accounting of the all-too-real 2008 financial collapse.... Lowenstein has a pitch-perfect sense of the Street's monumental recklessness."--"Time"

"["The End of Wall Street"] is a complex but imaginative book... [Lowenstein] is able to identify the creative instruments of financial destruction with the directness that is all-important to a book like this."--"New York Times"

"Think of Roger Lowenstein's "The End of Wall Street" as a tuition-free class in 21st-century U.S. macroeconomics... "The End of Wall Street" debunks the notion that no one could have seen the economic catastrophe coming."--"USA Today"

""The End of Wall Street" is a calm, reasoned, and often witty tour of the current financial landscape and how it got that way."--"Philadelphia Observer"

"In the flood of new books about the financial crisis, Roger Lowenstein's is a standout. Lowenstein, a highly accomplished financial journalist, lays out what may be the best explanation yet of the recent crash--and as good a prediction as any on what happens next."--"Barron's"

"Lowenstein's strong knowledge of the source material and flair for the dramatic and doomsday title should draw readers who still wonder what went wrong and how."--"Publishers Weekly"

"Lowenstein does a great job of explaining...in understandable terms that unobtrusively avoids the injection of emotion and politics."--"Booklist"

"Over the past year, there has been a steady stream of books trying to make sense of the crisis. The latest, and perhaps the most accessible and even-handed, is Roger Lowenstein's "The End of Wall Street.""--"Washington Post"

""The End of Wall Street" is a good book: witty, well-written, heavily researched and often dramatic."--Associated Press/Huffington Post

"A veteran financial/business journalist examines the past three years of economic collapse, chronicling actions and inactions from dozens of villains and a few heroes...A well-delineated chronicle likely to cause readers to ask who put the clowns in charge of the circus, and why aren't they confined to prison cells." --"Kirkus"
