The University of Central Oklahoma’s College of Business will host Andrew Ross Sorkin, author of Too Big To Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System — and Themselves. The lecture and book signing will begin at 10:30am in the Nigh University Center Constitution Hall on Wednesday, August 31, 2011.
The book delivers a behind-the scenes account of how domestic financial problems developed into a global crisis in 2008. It spent several weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and was nominated for the BBC’s Samuel Johnson prize for non-fiction. The Economist, The Financial Times and BusinessWeek named Too Big To Fail one of the best books of the year. Andrew Ross Sorkin is a leading voice about Wall Street and corporate America and New York Magazine described him as “the most famous financial journalist of his generation.”
