Reviews

"Sensational ... Tim's book will forever be the definitive work on what causes financial panics and what must be done to stem them when they occur." -- Warren Buffett
"Deals with issues far bigger than anything on the Man Booker long list." -- Anne Ashworth * The Times *
"Stress Test is an absolutely compelling account of the financial crisis, written in a clear, graceful style with striking honesty at every step along the way." -- Doris Kearns Goodwin
"This is a lucid, fascinating, and extremely important book ... Geithner does something unusual: he engages in substance. With both insight and humility, plus a good dose of wry humor, he explains what really happened during the financial crisis. No matter your political persuasion, you will find this book educational, enlightening, and interesting." -- Walter Isaacson
"A fascinating memoir about life in the maelstrom of the financial crisis ... Earlier books have described much of what happened that September, but Geithner was present for all the frantic meetings, the thousands of phone calls - and in the case of Lehman, the failure to find a buyer that could keep it alive. New problems cropped up almost weekly, if not daily. He explains each in easy-to-understand language and what the issues were that shaped the responses... There could be another crisis someday, of course, but what Geithner and his colleagues did has made one far less likely." * USA Today *
