Review

"Varoufakis has written one of the greatest political memoirs of all time . . . it is the inside story of high politics told by anoutsider . . . Varoufakis gives one of the most accurate and detaileddescriptions of modern power ever written." --Paul Mason, The Guardian

"A stylish memoir . . . deeply personal and very well written, with an impressive array of literary allusions . . . [Varoufakis] outlines a cogent case against the austerity heaped on Greece." --Kevin Featherstone, Financial Times

"Riveting . . . An extraordinary account of low cunning at the heart of Greece's 2015 financial bailout . . . [Varoufakis is] a motorcycling, leather jacketed former academic and self-styled rebel who took pleasure in winding up the besuited political class . . . An admirably believable depiction of a Greek and European tragedy." --John Kampfner, The Guardian

"Adults in the Room is a book that anyone interested in modern European politics should read. To say it is the best memoir of the Eurozone crisis is an understatement. It is a devastating indictment of [the] current state of Europe and a fascinating inside account of the logic of reformist politics and its limits and why it keeps going anyway . . . Varoufakis's account of the operations of EU 'decision-making' is truly shocking. He delivers a truly shocking anatomy of an apparatus bent on perpetuating its own bad logic and excluding alternatives." --Adam Tooze, Shelby Cullom Davis Chair of History and Director of the European Institute at Columbia University, and author of The Deluge

"One of my few heroes. As long as people like Varoufakis are around, there still is hope." --Slavoj Zizek

"A very, very clever person, and in the basic argument about what's been going on in Europe I think he's right." --Martin Wolf

"An outstanding economist and political analyst." --Noam Chomsky

"The most interesting man in the world." --Business Insider

"The Thucydides of our time." --Jeffrey Sachs

Book Description

An explosive, headline-making account from the world-famous economist of what happens when you take on the EU establishment
