Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"[A] magnificently entertaining and provocative new book....The origins of the book as a television series are apparent. The rapid shift of perspective is great fun, though an academic would say that it would be helpful to have a systematic exploration of the thesis of financial evolution. That would lead to the loss of some of the verve and vim with which the tale of financial genius and financial folly and skullduggery are interwoven."

Harold James, Times Literary Supplement, 03/27/2009
