Waterstones Says

A bestselling former Waterstones Non-Fiction Book of the Month, Varoufakis’s deeply humane and original volume on the inseparability of economics and politics is at once galvanising and fun to read.

Waterstones Non-Fiction Book of the Month for March 2019

'Why is there so much inequality?' Xenia asks her father, the world-famous economist Yanis Varoufakis.

Drawing on memories of her childhood and a variety of well-known tales - from Oedipus and Faust to Frankenstein and The Matrix - Varoufakis explains everything you need to know in order to understand why economics is the most important drama of our times.

In answering his daughter's deceptively simple questions, Varoufakis disentangles our troubling world with remarkable clarity, while inspiring us to make it a better one.

MEDIA REVIEWS

It's great fun to read ... Varoufakis has started a debate here, and he's done it brilliantly - Evening Standard

Utterly accessible, deeply humane and startlingly original – a potent democratic tool at the perfect time - Naomi Klein, author of No Is Not Enough

A provocative, challenging, yet non-patronising analysis of the global economy. By using ancient myths, contemporary culture and family stories, Varoufakis makes the text intimate and accessible - Nigel Jones, Observer

Experts have often found it easier to hide behind opaque language than to explain complex concepts in simple terms … Varoufakis wants to smash this barrier. . . He equips his readers with the beginnings of a new language, and punctures myth after myth – anna minton, guardian - Anna Minton, Guardian

Varoufakis's brief history of capitalism unspools with characteristic fluency and verve ... those seeking to better understand the 'black magic' of bankers should look no further - Financial Times
