Non-fiction about collapse of global financial markets. Sound well researched and well written. Interviewed by Terry Gross a few weeks ago. I read the first chapter.

Should I download the rest? Has anyone read it, is it really depressing?

I haven't read the book but have read the series on which it's based. Lewis is very readable and uses enough gallows humor and irony that the subject doesn't become too depressing.

I'm half way through. Amazing book. He makes just about every paragraph interesting. Like a travel show, really.

I highly, highly recommend it (assuming the second half is good).
