We have a winner on our giveaway of 'The Big Short'!

We had a giveaway following our review of Michael Lewis' new audiobook 'The Big Short' last week.

And we have a winner!

David Lawrence (@dlawrence0425 on twitter) is our winner! Congrats, David! You just won a great audiobook by Michael Lewis who was described by Malcolm Gladwell as "the finest storyteller of our generation." This audiobook is a gift of the publisher, Simon & Schuster Audio.

As we wrote last week, "The Big Short" is full of lessons. Not just for Wal-Street, but also for everyone occupied with global warming, as unfortunately the days of subprime planet are not over as Thomas Friedman predicted in 2008. The mix of short-term thinking, greed, herd mentality and avoiding critical thinking can be catastrophic and of course the question we all ask is how to avoid it. This audiobook is a good place to begin the search for answers.
