This review is from: Making It Happen: Fred Goodwin, RBS and the Men Who Blew up the British Economy (Hardcover)
This book disappointed me - it focuses far too much on the personalities and the authors view of them, and far too little on the actual causes of the crash. It's really an elongated opinion piece, not a proper assessment. In any book about the RBS collapse I would expect an assessment of the corporate Bank and Ulster Bank, both huge contributors to the crash, but instead the author has chosen to focus almost exclusively on the Investment Bank, which was a significant, but not sole factor. This book was fine, but it could have been so much better in my view.

Perhaps you should read the book again - and pay attention, this time.
