    Very detailed and coherent, fair minded account of how Ireland got into the horrible mess it s in right now It s remarkable that he was able to write it by the end of 2011, the final year covered by the book The main quibble I have is that while it s generally readable he makes few concessions to people who aren t from a business economics accounting background

    Well researched chronicle of the self serving bungles and blunders that led up to the crash.I ve read a few books on this subject, and this book puts things into clear perspective.Objective, blunt, and well written
