Bailout: An Inside Account of How Washington Abandoned Main Street While Rescuing Wall Street

Neil Barofsky, read by Joe Barrett. Blackstone Audio, unabridged, library edition, eight CDs, 9.5 hrs., $90 ISBN 978-1-4708-3220-9
A former federal prosecutor and special inspector general in charge of oversight of the Troubled Asset Relief Program, Barofsky offers this account of the government bailouts that saved big banks, but may have ignored the broader interests of the public at large. Narrator Joe Barrett’s narration makes the text—which can be dry at times—accessible and engaging. His everyman delivery will resonate with listeners, while his skillful, well-paced narration and top-notch characterizations do justice to an important book about a topic that still affects all Americans. A Free Press hardcover. (July)
