Comlicit - Book Review

Complicit – “choosing to be involved in an illegal or questionable act, esp. with others; having complicity.” (dictionary.com)

The second book read in 2010 was offered to me as an advanced copy by Bloomberg press. Complicit: How Greed and Collusion Made the Credit Crisis Unstoppable, written by Mark Gilbert offers an in-depth look at the events which lead up to our current economic conditions.

The book is basically just that – an in depth look at our latest financial crisis. Gilbert provides readers with dates, places, and even names of those responsible for our current situation.

I will however provide a warning to some readers. I found the reading to be a little dry. The book is packed with facts but doesn’t leave readers a lot of time to digest the information.

If you are just getting into the world of finance reading I would not suggest this book as one of your first five.
