Back from the Brink is a gripping and immediate account of the British government's handling of an unprecedented global financial catastrophe. Alistair Darling's knowledge and understanding make this not only a unique perspective on the events that rocked global capitalism, but a vital and fascinating historical document.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...one heck of a good read. * Guardian *
...a balanced, thoughtful, sober account of arguably the greatest crisis of the 21st Century... * Mail on Sunday *
[Alistair Darling] writes compellingly about the market meltdown and ensuing recession, spicing the narrative with a droll wit and acidic observations about the "arrogant and stupid" bank chiefs. If this story has been told before, it is still informative to have the scary view from the edge of the precipice as Britain teeters on the brink of a complete collapse of its banks. * Observer *

“A very good read.”

I am only half way through this very interesting book. It is hard to believe that we lived through such dramatic times, and are still doing! Anyone with an interest in what goes on in the world would love this book.
