Reviews

'A fine account of these extraordinary events.' Colm McCarthy, Sunday Independent
'A valuable and very readable insight into the work of an institution so important that its independence is protected by law ...' Irish Times
'Honohan's perspective as a policy-maker in one of the worst-affected countries would be valuable in any case. But this book is especially valuable for the unfailingly analytical approach Honohan brings to what he witnessed. It will be required reading for all who wish to understand what happened in the global financial crisis, and how that crisis did not become a calamity.' Dan Hardie, Central Banking Journal
'Ireland has overcome its financial crisis with exemplary success, and Professor Honohan's account is readable, clear and fascinating. He clearly believes that the euro area's troubles are not yet over, and it is impossible not to agree.' William A. Allen, Society of Professional Economists
