Product description

Review

The hardback publication of Niall Ferguson's book was prophetic, but this edition - topped and tailed with a passionate, closely argued call for us to educate ourselves about financial markets - could not be more timely (Tony Clements Telegraph)

Dazzling ... extraordinarily timely (Martin Vander Weyer Spectator)

A whistle-stop tour of the historical events that gave us the financial system we have today ... To Niall Ferguson's list of talents we can now add great timing (Stephanie Flanders Mail on Sunday)

Ferguson is the most brilliant British historian of his generation ... he writes with splendid panache (Times)

Ferguson's powers are on formidable display (Tristram Hunt Observer)

Wonderfully accessible ... Ferguson is spot on (Allister Heath Literary Review)

A fine history ... told with verve and insight (Daily Telegraph)

One of the world's leading historians (Hamish McRae Independent)
