Busted: Life Inside The Great Mortgage Meltdown

This looks like a must read book.  “One risk of writing a tell-all book is that someone might accuse you of not telling everything. In “Busted,” Edmund Andrews uses his own personal-finance fiasco to explain America’s home-foreclosure crisis. Mr. Andrews, an economics reporter for the New York Times, doles out what even he calls “cringe-inducing” details about breaking up his marriage, paying too much for a house and falling hopelessly behind on his mortgage payments. Even so, a blogger for the Atlantic has called him out for failing to mention that his second wife has declared bankruptcy twice, once after her marriage to Mr. Andrews — a detail that, if included in the book, could have drained some of the sympathy that readers might feel for this couple.”
