On 13 September 2007, Robert Peston broke the news that Northern Rock had become a victim of the global credit crunch and was seeking an emergency loan from the Bank of England. It was the latest in a long line of scoops by this award-winning journalist. Over the weeks that followed, the Government found itself exposed to the Rock to the tune of £57 billion, or almost £2,000 for every taxpayer.

As Robert Peston shows in his fascinating new book, the seeds for the collapse of Northern Rock and the upheavals in the financial markets were sown years before.

    " Possibly the best book On the financial crisis from a laymen's perspective. If you don't know much about credit default swaps and bank capital but are interested in the topic - this is the book for you. "

    " We are in a financial mess and this is why: we allow our world to be run by selfish monsters. Actually, it's worse than that - most people want to join them. Depressing if you have any anti-capitalist tendencies "
