Product description

Review

'Shredded is a magnificent book. I regard it as one of the best investigative books of the past decade' -- Eamonn O'Neill, BBC Radio Scotland

'A gripping account . . . RBS was a rogue business, operating in what had become a rogue industry, with the connivance of government. Read it and weep' -- Martin Wolf, Financial Times

'A model of the journalist's craft, Zola-esque in its broad and unsparing study of corporate hubris and nemesis and haunting in the questions it leaves in its wake' -- Bill Jamieson, Scotsman

'Impeccably researched and hard to put down at any point . . . The author pulls no punches' -- Philip Augar, Financial Times

'Explosive' -- Tom Harper, Independent on Sunday

'Combines Greek tragedy with real-life events that have affected us all. It's hard to put down' -- Devraj Ray, Mortgage Strategy

'I don't think I have ever read such a perfect morality tale for our times' -- Iona Bain, FT Adviser

'The definitive text. I'm thinking of Barbarians at the Gate about Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and RJR Nabisco. An instant classic' -- Max Keiser, The Keiser Report

'You should absolutely read Ian Fraser's Shredded. It is probably the definitive work on the British and Irish banks in the Great Bubble and the ensuing Great Financial Crisis' -- Alexander Harrowell, The Yorkshire Ranter

'Engrossing, fascinating and appalling . . . a fast-paced and sickeningly depressing exposition of what can go wrong when corporate governance fails' -- Ruth Bender, Cranfield University

'Magisterial . . . the most detailed catalogue to date of the errors and misdemeanours leading up to RBS's 2008 collapse and the failure -- in Fraser's view -- to reform the bank in its aftermath' -- Colin Donald, Herald

'A rattling good read. Hubris, nemesis. Truly shocking' -- Paul Rogerson, Law Society Gazette

'A manual for understanding banks, the financial crisis, and also corporate greed and hubris' -- P.C. Dettman

'The definitive account of the RBS fiasco. It's an engaging tale of how self-serving bank executives systematically broke the rules, lent ith astonishing recklessness, abused customers and got suckered by Wall Street - before dumping their mess on the taxpayers' -- Yves Smith, author of Naked Capitalism

'Nearly six years after the bailout, Shredded reminds us how much of banking reform is still a work in progress' -- Nick Dunbar, nickdunbar.net

'Ian Fraser has produced a genuine page turner' -- Alex Marsh, Pieria

'The best financial book I've ever read. Thank you, Ian, for a public service' -- Simon Bain, Herald

'Not just the definitive book on the collapse of RBS but one of the best five books on the great financial collapse which changed the history of the 21st century. Ian pulls no punches in his conclusions' -- Russell Napier, CLSA

'This book should be posted through the letterbox of every taxpayer in Britain' --David Mellor, former Chief Secretary to the Treasury



'Shredded is a monumental book, well written, impeccably researched and hard to put down at any point' --Financial Times

'Not just a book about RBS but about something profound that happened ethically in our country' --Russell Napier, CLSA
