The Road From Ruin will be remembered as a serious, highly readable book of the broadest intellectual scope. Its insights will help all of us reshape the future and enable both citizen and policy maker alike to separate real reform from the grandstanding bluster so prevalent today. * Robert Shiller, Professor of Economics at Yale University and author of Irrational Exuberance *
The Road From Ruin is a masterpiece. Matthew Bishop and Michael Green combine truly luminous writing with simple, clear, unprejudiced scholarship and a keen journalistic awareness of how to extract lessons from the financial crisis to begin forming an agenda for a badly needed reform of capitalism. * Robert Monks, shareholder activist *
The book offers a wonderfully clear and comprehensive account of the economic and financial history of the past half century, and the forces that led to near-disaster in the past decade. * Justin Fox, Harvard Business Review *
In its clarity of both thought and expression, this is a book that leaves you feeling cautiously better about the potential of capitalism and so cautiously better about its prospects. * Sir Martin Sorrell, CEO, WPP *
Drawing not only on their keen understanding of current economic events, but also on a depth of knowledge of financial history, Matthew Bishop and Michael Green have written a lucid and lively account of the underlying factors that brought the world economy to the brink of collapse. * Liaquat Ahamed, author of The Lords of Finance *
An essential read for anyone who wants to learn why a corporate focus on sustainability and building a better society is the key to the long-lasting productivity growth and job creation that are needed now more than ever. * John Chambers, CEO, Cisco *
Admirably clear * The Financial Times *
A delightful and stimulating read by two of today's best business writers. * Don Tapscott, author of Wikinomics *
Provocative and refreshing. * The New York Times *
'well researched, lucidly written, thoughtful and a welcome relief from being banged on the head by Vince Cable.' * Financial World (March 2011) *
