From the Publisher:
The secretary of the treasury during the end of George W. Bush's presidency gives his side of the economic collapse that occurred in the waning days of his watch over America's banking system.
Annotation:
After more than 30 years at Goldman Sachs, Henry Paulson reluctantly became George W. Bush's Secretary of the Treasury, a position he held from June 2006 to January 2009. Paulson, famously mocked as "the fox in the henhouse," came to regret his statement, in mid-2008, that "the worst is likely to be behind us"--words that were soon followed by one of the worst economic crashes in the history of the U.S. Now, in his first-person look back at his tenure and the financial crisis he oversaw, Paulson provides his own account of what happened--and admits that mistakes just might have been made....

Praise

"[A] gripping book...In ON THE BRINK a principal architect of the bailouts that began in 2008 provides a revealing play-by-play account of the financial crisis." - James Freeman 02/04/2010

"[Paulson's] first-person account of the epic financial collapse is just that -- straightforward and direct. Shorn of anonymous, unsourced dish, it nonetheless offers plenty of excellent color and detail. " - Daniel Gross 02/05/2010
