The "Greatest Trade Ever" is the thrilling story of the trader John Paulson who predicted the economic crash in 2008 - and made the biggest windfall in history, by Gregory Zuckerman. Autumn 2008. The world's finances collapse but one man makes a killing. John Paulson, a softly spoken hedge-fund manager who still took the bus to work, seemed unlikely to stake his career on one big gamble. But he did - and "The Greatest Trade Ever" is the story of how he realised that the sub-prime housing bubble was going to burst, making $15 Billion for his fund and more than $4 Billion for himself in a single year. It's a tale of folly and wizardry, individual brilliance versus institutional stupidity. John Paulson made the biggest winning bet in history. And this is how he did it. "The definitive account of a sensational trade". (Michael Lewis, author of "The Big Short"). "Extraordinary, excellent". ("Observer"). "A must-read for anyone fascinated by financial madness". ("Mail on Sunday"). "A forensic, read-in-one-sitting book". ("Sunday Times"). "Simply terrific. Easily the best of the post-crash financial books". (Malcolm Gladwell). "A great page-turner and a great illuminator of the market's crash". (John Helyar, author of "Barbarians at the Gate").
