About the Author

Gillian Tett oversees global coverage of the financial markets for the Financial Times, the world's leading newspaper covering finance and business. In 2007 she was awarded the Wincott prize, the premier British award for financial journalism, and in 2008 was named British Business Journalist of the Year. Tett is the author of Saving the Sun: How Wall Street Mavericks Shook Up Japan's Financial World and Made Billions and The Silo Effect: Ordered Chaos, the Peril of Expertise, and the Power of Breaking Down Barriers.

Reviews

Tett's complex and well-written narrative of J.P. Morgan's role in the financial meltdown lends itself awkwardly to the audio format, in part because general readers who are not specialists in the workings of financial derivatives will find themselves lost in a sea of acronyms and specialized terminology without the useful glossary at the back of the print book. Stephen Hoye's talents don't shine here, with an on-again/off-again British accent for one of the key players and a plodding delivery of some portions of the labyrinthine story. An abridgment could have helped to retain listener interest without becoming ensnared in intricately detailed descriptions of events; such descriptions were the lifeblood of Tett's sophisticated print book, but they slow the audio version significantly. A Free Press hardcover (Reviews, June 8). (Aug.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
