Description - Adults In The Room by Yanis Varoufakis

** The Sunday Times #1 Bestseller**

'One of the greatest political memoirs of all time' Guardian

What happens when you take on the European establishment?

Read as world-famous, provocative economist, and former Greece finance minister, Yanis Varoufakis, blows the lid on his battle with EU officials over the Greek debt crisis.

Varoufakis sparked one of the most spectacular and controversial battles in recent political history with his attempt to renegotiate Greece's relationship with the European Union. Yet despite the mass support of the Greek people, and simple logic of his arguments, he succeeded only in provoking the fury of Europe's political, financial and media elite.
Exposing the real business taking place behind the EU's closed doors, Varoufakis reveals all in this fearless, personal account. Adults In The Room is an extraordinary tale of brinkmanship, hypocrisy, collusion and betrayal that will shake the European and economic establishment to its foundations.

Varoufakis is sending out an urgent wake-up call to renew European democracy before it is too late.
