Product description

Review

Andrew Ross Sorkin pens what may be the definitive history of the banking crisis (The Atlantic Monthly)

Andrew Ross Sorkin has written a fascinating, scene-by-scene saga of the eyeless trying to march the clueless through Great Depression II (Tom Wolfe)

Sorkin has succeeded in writing the book of the crisis, with amazing levels of detail and access (Reuters)

Sorkin can write. His storytelling makes Liar's Poker look like a children's book (SNL Financial)

Too good to put down . . . It is the story of the actors in the most extraordinary financial spectacle in 80 years, and it is told brilliantly . . . It is hard to imagine them being this riveting (Economist)

As close to a definitive account as we are likely to get (Dominic Lawson, Sunday Times)

The most readable and exciting report of the events surrounding the Lehman collapse that we have seen . . . impeccably sourced (Edmund Conway, Daily Telegraph)

Surpassed its rivals with its depth, range of reporting and high quality analysis (Stefan Stern, FT)

He has done a remarkable job in producing a lively account that will be hard for subsequent authors to beat (Gillian Tett, FT)

The sense of being in the meeting rooms as hitherto all-conquering alpha male egos fight for their reputations, as their and our world judders, is palpable (Chris Blackhurst, Evening Standard)
