...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.
