Back from the Brink Reviews

...one heck of a good read. * Guardian *
...a balanced, thoughtful, sober account of arguably the greatest crisis of the 21st Century... * Mail on Sunday *
[Alistair Darling] writes compellingly about the market meltdown and ensuing recession, spicing the narrative with a droll wit and acidic observations about the arrogant and stupid bank chiefs. If this story has been told before, it is still informative to have the scary view from the edge of the precipice as Britain teeters on the brink of a complete collapse of its banks. * Observer *
