5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant analysis of the state of Britain, entertaining and easy to read
This morning I heard on the Today Programme that Max Hastings has been slating the British as idle and useless compared with the Chinese.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a dull read

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant, 27 Jun 2011
This book is a brilliant accompaniment to the television series. Reading it I learnt a lot about British industry and business in spite of considering myself well informed.

This ia a compelling read. Evan Davis is a great communicator, and an expert at clarifying complex economic theories. I saw very little of the television series that the book is based on, but that in unimportant. I urge anyone who thinks that the UK is doomed to read this and cheer up!Made in Britain

4.0 out of 5 stars written review, 30 Oct 2011
Purchased this for my son as a 1st year specialist doing Economics at PreU/A level. We have found it to be very relevant, an easy read and very clear in its economic evaulation of today's climate.
