F-bombs away

Paul Kedrosky rates the new books on the recent Financial Armageddon based on a simple criterion: the number of F-bombs dropped within the text.

On this scale, the current leader is Michael Lewis’ The Big Short, which contains 15 of this particular expletive, or 0.06 per page. Andrew Ross Sorkin’s Too Big To Fail works in twenty of them, but it’s a longer book (624 pages versus 266).
