Donald Luskin reviews very favorably David Wessel's In Fed We Trust.
And I'm quite convinced that it's completely accurate. I know lots of the firefighters at the Fed, the Treasury, and the White House. Wessel's account perfectly matches what they were telling me in real-time. One very highly-placed contact at the Fed told me three weeks ago that he had read Wessel's book, and that every detail was exactly right. So if you want to know what really happened -- not just some reporter's sensationalistic interpretation -- then this is the book for you.
