(For those of you sick of hearing about the book, register, then “deselect” bailout nation as a category — you will never see another post on the subject again!)
At long last, the date is finally here: The book officially publishes today, May 26, 2009.
That’s a great start, but I’d like to bust into the top 100 of all books, and the top 10 of biz books.
I have been discussing to Wiley about doing some special promos for blog readers, and we came up with a few ideas. A new promotion will roll out each week.
For starters, its a free book plate — order from any of the sources on the site (Amazon, B&N, Borders) and the first few 100 get a signature plate for their book. Yes, I am manually signing 500 of these. Go to this link to register for the signed plate insert.

Felix Salmon asks an oddly interesting question: “As befits a book from such an assiduous source-citer as Ritholtz, Bailout Nation comes with 17 pages of endnotes, most of them with URLs. But here’s the funny thing: the number of blogs cited is tiny. Paging through the notes, I see Barry citing himself a couple of…Read More
I was pleasantly surprised this morning when I woke up to find the first review of Bailout Nation was written, by Eddy Elfenbein of Crossing Wall Street. It is very long and thoughtful and I am thrilled with it. Excerpt: In Bailout Nation: How Greed and Easy Money Corrupted Wall Street and Shook the World…Read More
Fascinating discussion with one of my favorite business writers: Roger Lowenstein on Charlie Rose, circa 1995 discussing Buffett: The Making of an American Capitalist. I quote Lowenstein’s When Genius Failed extensively in Bailout Nation. I’d love to get a copy to him, but I cannot find his email address anywhere (except Portfolio, which is now…Read More
