I didn't see where any new ground was broken in this book, though Lowenstein did offer more of his opinions than I have seen in most other books on this subject. I don't put this in the category of 'must read". Splicing what Rodriguez was up to throughout the book was about the most original aspect of the whole book.

To be honest I also did not see to much ground broken. Most of the facts one could have learned from reading Too Big to Fail. However, my point was that Lowenstein was brutually honest in the book that was the most positive aspect of it. In addition, I liked his inclusion of Rodriquez throughout the book.

That said I think Too Big to Fail was a better book, and I think The Failure of _Genius was a much better read then Lowenstein's new book.
