Reviews

  • Beautifully paced, dramatically subtle and psychologically shrewd, this is Ferguson at his finest

    Peter Stormonth Darling, Spectator
  • Ferguson is a talented writer, capable of grace and insight, but it is his ability as a historian that shows most strongly in High Financier

    T. J. Stiles, The Washington Post Sunday
  • Its many finance lessons aside, High Financier is a pleasure to read simply as a work of literary skill. It is not only prodigiously researched but also splendidly written-clear and vivid and precise, perhaps even of enough merit to satisfy a word-stickler like Siegmund Warburg

    Wall Street Journal
  • A timely, original and engaging biography of Siegmund Warburg

    Sathnam Sanghera, The Times
  • This book is both a notable contribution to economic history and a fascinating portrait
