"Too big to fail is too good to put down... it is the story of the actors in the most extraordinary financial spectacle in 80 years, and is told brilliantly." The economist.
On a mid-September morning in 2008, Americans woke to discover the unthinkable: the nations financial system was in free fall. How did this happen? In one of the most gripping financial narratives in decades, Andrew delivers a brilliantly reported true-life thriller that goes behind the scenes off the financial crisis on Wall Street and in Washington.
Through unprecedented access to the players involved, he re-creates all the drama and turmoil of those turbulent days, revealing never-before-disclosed details and recounting how, motivated as often by ego and greed as by self and self-perseveration, the most powerful men and women in finance and politics decided the fate of the world economy.
He has done a remarkable job in producing a lively account that will be hard for subsequent authors to beat. Gillian Tett, FT
