"The book is nicely and clearly written... the author does a good job in summarising each chapter not only at the beginning but also at the end of each chapter. It allowed the reader to grasp the material and go over the information more than once. Moreover, the conclusion summarises the entire book and the findings very well. These findings are really important and could be examined further as the crisis has been developing since the date the book was written (2013). Therefore, I believe the book is relevant not only for students and scholars of comparative political economy but also to policy makers."
