Product description

Review

Brooks says things that have needed saying for many years. -- John Kay - Financial Times columnist and Visiting Professor of Economics, London School of Economics

Richard Brooks is a digger and a troublemaker who niggles away at difficult subjects in a meticulous, punchy and highly effective way -- Alan Rusbridger - Former Editor, The Guardian

Truly devastating. How many more workers and pensioners will have their lives and expectations smashed, before politicians pluck up the courage to require those occupying the heights of British capitalism to get their accounting and auditing houses in order? -- Frank Field MP - Chairman of the Work and Pensions Select Committee

Gripping. This is a must-read for anyone who seeks to expose corruption and bad behaviour. -- Margaret Hodge MP - former Chair of the Public Accounts Committee

Impeccably researched and written, this is a ground-breaking expose of a profession that has lost the plot. Everyone in business and finance should read this. -- Ian Fraser - Bestselling author of Shredded: Inside RBS, the Bank That Broke Britain

With forensic detail, Richard Brooks has exposed the march of the accountants from humble bean counters to a small cartel dominating modern capitalism. -- John McDonnell MP - Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer

Book Description

A compelling exposé revealing how the world's accountants are running the world for their own benefit.
