"Grimly fascinating... This is a pacey accessible and astute summary of what has gone wrong with the banks, and what the banks have done wrong... It is a sobering narrative in which Brummer's judgements are nuanced and reliable." -- Oliver Kamm * The Times * "Like a surgeon at his operating table, Brummer dissects each British, American and European scandal of the last 10 years. He spares nobody, but his demolition job is made all the more powerful by the sparing language he deploys towards his targets. This is controlled menace at its best." -- John Kampfner * Observer * "[Brummer] is a doyen of British financial journalism and it shows in the maturity of his judgments and breadth of his knowledge... It is all skilfully woven together by a writer who knows when to fly high and when to swoop low." * Financial Times * "Through and expansive." * Management Today * "An informed, riveting and ultimately disconcerting read." * Business Life *
