I recently read Michael Lewis' new book, Boomerang. It's a fascinating book about the recent European Debt Crisis. Like most of Lewis' books (especially The Big Short, that chronicles the U.S. financial crisis) he's able to take a fairly mundane topic, roll it up into a few hundred pages and make it a page turner.
The book dives into the crises that occurred in the last few years in three countries: Iceland, Greece and Ireland.
It's a fascinating and very well written book. It gives the inside story on the political, economic and cultural circumstances that led to the unlikely collapse of three different economies. If you're interested in European economics, politics or culture, I can assure you that you that you'll enjoy reading Boomerang.
