Product description

Review

'We are indebted to Ray Perman for giving us a powerful lesson on what happens when you usurp the wisdom of a banking culture acquired over centuries for the pursuit of market share and profit at all and any cost' --The Scotsman

'...as a document of the long and short-term causes of one of British banking's lowest moments, Perman's book more than delivers. Its balanced treatment of the major players involved should be required reading for anyone wondering where to position the likes of Hornby in the credit crunch Hall of Shame,' --Breaking Views

'[An] admirably lucid account' --Independent on Sunday
