Brian Groom, Financial Times "O'Toole ... has produced a coruscating polemic against the cronyism and corruption that in his view helped to fuel the boom...

Ship of Fools is not just for those drawn to Irish politics or economics. Americans, in particular, will relate to Ireland's battle to restore its economy and renew faith in its leaders."
