'The definitive account of a sensational trade' Michael Lewis, author of The Big ShortAutumn 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.'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.
