Review

NATIONAL BESTSELLER 
FINALIST 2013 – Arthur Ellis Awards—Best Crime Non-Fiction
 
“Listeners of NPR’s Planet Money podcast, which has a knack for telling complicated financial stories in plain, vivid English, will note the same talent in Livesey.... A dogged reporter, he travels far beyond downtown Toronto to reconstruct the downfalls of Nortel, Stelco and [Conrad] Black’s Hollinger International, among others.”
The Walrus
 
“Compelling.... Livesey scores many perceptive points.... His writing is punchy and persuasive, fuelled by intelligence. He also nicely interweaves statistics, public-policy arguments and analysis and explanations of how the markets work (or don’t work...) with individual horror stories of financial planning and investing gone awry.”
Winnipeg Free Press
 
“Essential reading not only for those with money to invest, but anyone concerned about the path to social and economic ruin we are following.”
The Record (Kitchener)
