Publisher Comments:

In this gripping, revelatory, and brilliantly reported book, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ron Suskind tells for the first time the full story of Americas financial meltdown and an untested new president charged with commanding Washington, taming Wall Street, rescuing an economy on the verge of collapse, and restoring the confidence of a shaken nation.

Suskind moves from the frenzied trading floors of lower Manhattan to the power corridors inside the Beltway and introduces a larger-than-life cast of politicians and advisors, titans of high finance, reformers, lobbyists, and others who faced a crisis unlike anything they had ever imagined. Based on hundreds of interviews, filled with piercing insight and startling disclosures, Confidence Men brings into focus the unprecedented struggle between the nations two capitals—New York and Washington, one of private gain, the other of public purpose—that continues to divide and roil America.
