If you're going to pay for this audiobook with a credit card, you might want to think twice--you could be contributing to a tsunami of debt that's about to submerge our economy. Completed before the mortgage industry began its nosedive, this audiobook lays out some sobering statistics (more people will declare bankruptcy this year than get divorced) and provides some sad case studies about predatory lenders, frantic borrowers, and a greedy, unregulated industry. The audiobook is based on the popular documentary of the same name, and Scurlock narrates with authority and conviction. Unfortunately, because much of the material is derived directly from the film, those who've watched the movie, may find it a cross between outtakes and DVD extras.
