I did not. I am not a book guy. I forced myself to read some trading books many years ago, but that is my absolute limit.

What about you?

Hooray! Brad Pitt is "acting" again.

I've read a few Michael Lewis books but could not finish Big Short. He's entertaining but facts are not his strong suit.

Someday, and that day may never come, I'll call upon you to do a service for me.

Yeah, I thought it was quite good. I like most all of Michael Lewis' stuff though, even the non trading ones like Moneyball. I'm glad they're making a movie out of this one. It's a great story.

I have the book and i read the book
it was one of those books i read in one single effort
you start reading it and you're caught in it
fascinating story

I look forward to see this movie

When i was in California in 2004 i had a feeling..
this is not real
this is not possible

I have the same vision today about Europe currently
still haven't figured out how to monetize it
but this time i don't want to miss the opportunity...

Very nice story...

I read the book, and as @rleplae said "it was one of those books i read in one single effort you start reading it and you're caught in it".

Unfortunately as @Pariah Carey said "He's entertaining but facts are not his strong suit."

This is Lewis's 4th or 5th book that demonize's the financial system and as entertaining as it was I now wonder how objective and un-biased it actually it is. Interestingly the trailer makes this look even more anti-bank than I remember the book being. But hey, beating up wall street sells well.
