  • Lewis is the finest storyteller of our generation.

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

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

    Tony Barber, Financial Times
