About the Author

Liz Hoffman is a reporter for the Wall Street Journal in New York, where she covers business and finance. She's covered some of the biggest deals of the last decade, breaking key stories and, more recently, covering the pandemic. Liz graduated from Tufts University and has a masters degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.


'With the urgency of Too Big to Fail and unforgettable characterizations of The Big Short, Crash Landing tells a momentous story: how the Covid-19 pandemic threatened not just billions of lives but the livelihoods and economic safety of nearly everyone on the planet.' -- Brad Stone, author of Amazon Unbound and The Everything Store
"Hoffman takes readers behind the scenes to show how corporate, business and government leaders responded to a once-in-century calamity. Crash Landing is full of drama. Those eager to prepare for the next crisis should read this book and heed its lessons." --Gregory Zuckerman, New York Times bestselling author of The Man Who Solved the Market

"Crash Landing is a true masterwork. Liz Hoffman's perceptive, well researched, and captivating look at how COVID transformed the business and financial industries should be on the shelf of every student of the business world."
--David Rubenstein, co-founder and co-chairman, The Carlyle Group; New York Times bestselling author of How to Invest
"A rare look inside the split -second, high-stakes decisions at the top of America's corporate giants. This book reflects Liz Hoffman's rare combination of valuable gifts: vivid writing, incredible access and sourcing, and actual insight." -- Mary Childs, author of national bestseller The Bond King, cohost of NPR's "Planet Money"
"There is a reason Liz Hoffman is known in journalism circles as a scoop machine: she gets people to talk. In Crash Landing she takes us inside the heads of the business world's biggest power players as they stare at an economic abyss. The result is a riveting chronicle of the boardroom brinksmanship that-mostly-succeeded, but also how this unprecedented era exposed new risks and thrust an uncomfortable spotlight on the role of corporate leaders that will endure." --Bradley Hope, New York Times bestselling author of Billion Dollar Whale and The Rebel and the Kingdom

'This book reads like a suspense thriller, because that's what it is, even though every word is true. Hoffman casts her brilliant reportorial eye on the economic upheaval that began in late 2019. She reveals just how often the supposed rational leaders of the economy are actually shooting from the hip, relying on gut instinct, cronyism and self-interest to try and steer the economy away from the abyss.' -- Brian Koppelman, co-creator, showrunner, and executive producer of Showtime's Billions
'In Crash Landing, Liz Hoffman offers something fresh and much-needed: an insider tale of what it takes to steer a company-indeed, an economy-through a shock that nobody saw coming. Having spent time in boardrooms in times of crisis, the portrait she paints is highly accurate. The aspiring C-suite class should take note.' -- Harvey Schwartz, former president and co-chief operating officer, Goldman Sachs
