Review

Brian Groom, "Financial Times"
"O'Toole ... has produced a coruscating polemic against the cronyism and corruption that in his view helped to fuel the boom.... [H]is highly readable book is a salutary reminder that cronyism, light regulation and loose ethics can be a deadly combination."

"Cleveland Plain Dealer""An interesting and readable post-mortem.... "Ship of Fools" is not just for those drawn to Irish politics or economics. Americans, in particular, will relate to Ireland's battle to restore its economy and renew faith in its leaders."
