Summary:

Random House presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Adults in the Room by Yanis Varoufakis.
*** 'One of the greatest political memoirs of all time' (Guardian) ***
What happens when you take on the establishment? In this blistering, personal account, world-famous economist Yanis Varoufakis blows the lid on Europe's hidden agenda and exposes what actually goes on in its corridors of power.

Varoufakis sparked one of the most spectacular and controversial battles in recent political history when, as finance minister of Greece, he attempted to re-negotiate his country's relationship with the EU. Despite the mass support of the Greek people and the simple logic of his arguments, he succeeded only in provoking the fury of Europe's political, financial and media elite. But the true story of what happened is almost entirely unknown - not least because so much of the EU's real business takes place behind closed doors.
In this fearless account, Varoufakis reveals all: an extraordinary tale of brinkmanship, hypocrisy, collusion and betrayal that will shake the deep establishment to its foundations.
As is now clear, the same policies that required the tragic and brutal suppression of Greece's democratic uprising have led directly to authoritarianism, populist revolt and instability throughout the Western world.
Adults In The Room is an urgent wake-up call to renew European democracy before it is too late.

    Exceptional book. Initially I had concerns that it might prove to be a somewhat biased and self-serving account, but as the book progresses Varoufakis disects the events surrounding Syriza's election with searing and often introspective critical analysis. His ability to explain complex economic issues in layman terms is second to none, and his summaries of key events and historical context are as riveting as they are accessible. Varoufakis offers a what appears to a concurrent and often conflicting version of events to that which we have all become acquainted through mainstream media reporting. The quality of the narration fully matches the quality of the text.
