  • Fascinating ... the book could not be more timely ... a sharp-edged narrative that leaves readers with a visceral understanding of the fiscal recklessness that lies behind today's headlines

    Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
  • Michael Lewis's bravura journey through Europe's economic underbelly brilliantly charts the consequences of a world plagued by debt ... highly enjoyable ... nicely politically incorrect, often very funny, and shot through with genuine insight

    Robert Harris, Sunday Times
  • Brilliant ... he has a novelist's gift

    Spectator, Books of the Year
  • Lewis' investigation of bubbles across Europe is brilliantly, sadly hiliarious

    GQ magazine
  • Caustically funny ... urgent and chilling ... a thought-provoking read

    Ian Morris, Observer
  • Lewis is the finest storyteller of our generation

    Malcolm Gladwell
  • He is so good everyone else may as well pack up

    Evening Standard
  • Michael Lewis meets some extraordinary characters in his excursion through the barely controlled madness that is modern finance ... lucid, entertaining

    Tony Barber, Financial Times
  • He writes with the wit and observational eye of a travel writer

    Richard Fitzpatrick, Irish Examiner
  • He writes quite brilliantly and understands the complex financial matters whereof he speaks. As polemical prose goes, it is hard to beat

    Howard Davies, Management Today
