3.0 out of 5 stars Too Big to Edit, Dec 21 2009
By 
This review is from: Too Big to Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the FinancialSystem---and Themselves (Hardcover)
Having waded through every not very suspenseful page of this volume, I find it puzzling that no one apparently seemed to have thought it necessary to proofread the text before it was published. I cannot recall the last time I encountered so many spelling errors, grammatical mistakes and examples of sloppy punctuation. Coupled with Mr. Sorkin's fondness for stock phrases and cliche, one comes away from the experience wondering whether some publishing houses now simply regard certain books as being too big to edit. One perception that Mr. Sorkin does confirm, perhaps rather inadvertently, is the degree of self-absorption and lack of concern for the real-world effect of their actions that seems to be the dominant character trait of every senior Wall Street figure he presents. Prices they all know, values seem less familiar.
