I'm a journalist based in São Paulo.  CRASH  is my first book and was a best seller in Brazil published by Leya, with sales over 30,000 and it was also nominated for the Jabuti Award in 2012, the most important literary prize in Brazil.  
Released in 2011, it was the second best selling title on economics in Brazil in the last 12 months, including all foreign titles. In 2012, the book was released in Portugal with an aditional chapter about the euro crisis. This four pieces posted here are the first chapters of the book.
