Ferguson presents a fierce indictment of predatory activities of parts of the financial system and of the corruption of democracy that big money financial lobbying has caused. A book well worth reading regardless of whether you fully agree or not with all of its arguments. --Nouriel Roubini, Professor at New York University and author of Crisis Economics
This take-no-prisoners account of the financial crisis follows the money, connects the dots, names names, and asks the questions our leaders still refuse to answer: how have those responsible for the crisis not been held accountable, and how can we make sure it doesn t happen again? --Arianna Huffington, Editor-in-Chief of the Huffington Post
As gripping as any thriller. --The Guardian on Charles Ferguson s film Inside Job
He's clever, he's funny, he doesn't pull his punches... [Ferguson's] evisceration of the Obama government's alliance with the banks opens a new front in the war on Wall Street.... If only righteous fury were always this enjoyable. --The Guardian
One of the outstanding journalistic achievements of the past decade --Daily Mail on the film Inside Job
‘I was totally gripped and have sat up in bed every night reading [Inside Job] until my eyes just couldn’t stay open any more. I liked the film, and the book is even better... you have to read this book.' FT Weekend review
