Busted: Life Inside the Great Mortgage Meltdown

Edmund L. Andrews, , read by Dick Hill. . Tantor Audio, $29.99 (0pp) ISBN 978-1-4001-1332-3

Andrews, a New York Times business journalist, recounts how—despite knowing better—he became enmeshed in the mortgage crisis. He reports on his various banking blunders and shifts out of his personal story to examine the causes of the crash and make prognoses. Dick Hill gives a rousing performance; he presents the material in a straightforward journalistic tone without sounding too manufactured or monotonous. With Hill in command, this analysis of the financial meltdown makes for absorbing—and surprisingly entertaining—listening. A Norton hardcover (Reviews, Apr. 27). (Aug.)
