In a startling confession in his book, Andrews admits that while in the midst of an interview with former Federal Reserve System chairman Alan Greenspan about the causes of the mortgage meltdown, he felt “an irresistible urge to spill my guts.”

The story takes Andrews to the offices of Alan Greenspan, the mansions of subprime-mortgage millionaires in southern California, a despondent deal makers’ convention in Las Vegas, and Wall Street.

Andrews has been a reporter for the Hew York Times for 16 years.
