The most interesting man in the world - Business Insider

"One of the greatest political memoirs of all time."-The Guardian

In this blistering memoir and expose, Varoufakis blows the lid off the world's deep establishment, exposing what actually goes on behind the scenes through the corridors of real power. He offers a fascinatingly candid I-was-there account of his meetings with Barack Obama, Lawrence Summers, and European leaders. He exposes the hypocrisies, power plays, and frustrated good intentions that control the fate of nations large and small. While he was finance minister of Greece, Varoufakis sparked one of the most spectacular and controversial battles in modern political history when he fought to renegotiate his country's relationship with Europe's banks and governments. Despite the mass support of the Greek people and the logic of his arguments, Varoufakis succeeded only in provoking the fury of both the political and media establishment.

The future of the world economic order now hangs in the balance. As Varoufakis argues, the only way it can survive is if the truth is known, ushering in a new era of radical transparency and accountability.

'One of my few heroes. As long as people like Varoufakis are around, there is still hope."
-Slavoj Zizek

"An outstanding economist and political analyst!" - Noam Chomsky

Yanis Varoufakis is the former finance minister of Greece and cofounder of an international grassroots movement campaigning for the revival of democracy.
