Reviews

"As entertaining as the colorful character portraits are, what makes The Spider Network truly memorable are the portraits of the various institutions that made the scandal not just possible but inevitable." -- New York Times on The Spider Network
"A thrilling tour de force of reporting, revelation and reasoning. For anyone who wants to understand what really went on inside a scam of epic proportions, The Spider Network is unmissable." -- Iain Martin, author of Crash Bang Wallop, on The Spider Network
"A feat of reporting, and much of it reads like a novel. . . . Enrich's unfettered access to Hayes and his keen eye for detail make for a compelling portrait of a gifted but troubled man." -- Washington Post on The Spider Network
"A damning look at the culture of trader chicanery... Enrich has sidestepped the temptation to slip into author-as-prosecutor mode, instead going the wry tour guide route to lucidly (and often hilariously) usher readers through the Looney Tunes world that wrought l'affaire Libor." -- John Helyar, coauthor of Barbarians at the Gate
"[Enrich's] impressive reporting and writing chops are on full display in The Spider Network... From the start, the book reads like a fast-paced John le Carre thriller, and never lets up." -- William D. Cohan, New York Times Book Review, on The Spider Network
"With an unerring eye for detail, Enrich shows in this masterful work how a toxic stew of greed, arrogance and a lust for power led to a criminal scheme of unparalleled dimensions. It should be required reading for anyone who wants to understand the dirty underbelly of the financial world." -- Kurt Eichenwald, Pulitzer Prize winning author of The Informant, on The Spider Network
"This dwarfs by orders of magnitude any financial scams in the history of markets." -- Andrew Lo, professor of finance at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
"So how did a socially awkward English math whiz mastermind manipulation of lending rates on a global scale? ... In David Enrich's gripping tale, the characters have nicknames worthy of the Mafia, and their ethical compasses aren't much better." -- Paul Ingrassia, Pulitzer Prize winner, bestselling author of Crash Course
"Mr. Enrich effectively uses the unique access he secured to the mildly autistic UBS trader, Tom Hayes, who became the fall guy for the unfolding scandal, to produce a surprisingly human narrative...." -- Jonathan A. Knee, New York Times DealBook
"David Enrich has written an incredibly entertaining, globe-straddling inside account of how one trader turbocharged a greedy cabal that scammed savers and borrowers everywhere. A must read if you want to understand how big banks and traders really work." -- Marcus Brauchli, former Executive Editor of the Washington Post and Managing Editor of the Wall Street Journal
"Dare I say it, but The Spider Network will snare you in its web of deceit, lies, corruption, manipulation and colorful characters. David Enrich's brilliant investigative expose will reverberate from Wall Street to Main Street." -- Harlan Coben, bestselling author of Home and Fool Me Once, on The Spider Network
