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 --… (mais)

Author thinks he's the biggest badass on the planet and economic Jesus (the sacrifice bit, less of the saving angle). I guess if he failed then there's no hope for Greece.

I find it curious how he constantly portrays himself as the only honest politician who's repeatedly being played for a fool by everyone around him friends and enemies alike. He is clearly a clever man so this makes me question how genuine his stories are. Also in case you've not picked up on how principled he is he recounts at the very beginning his father's story of selfless sacrifice in the name of principles just to make sure you get it. He's definitely not pretending to be humble but I wouldn't go as far as accusing him of narcissism.

Despite my doubts and this being purely biographical (was expecting some discussion of economic problems but found none) it's still interesting to catch a glimpse of how politics is done.

Edit:
If you're interested in this topic (debt crisis, not Varoufakis) from a more global perspective and in greater scope I can recommend Crashed by Adam Tooze. ( )

Entertaining read if only for getting 'tainted' view of the inner workings of Europe.

The author, quite expectably, presents himself as the one and only person who was right all along and was fighting the 'good' fight. By the time the book is finished you will have realized that poor Mr Varufakis was the victim and was cast aside not just from the Europeans but his own 'deluded' party and comrades (except of course the simple people who believed and still believe in him).

Read only for fun but be aware of how one-sided and superficial the presentation is. This book is coming from a person that admittedly spent hours on camera every night to record himself and what was happening, self proclaiming those moments and his involvement as of historic significance... ( )

Het is verleidelijk om Varoufakis’ memoires te lezen als een afrekening met de Europese politici en technocraten met wie hij zo veel te stellen heeft gehad. En natuurlijk snap je zijn ongeloof als de Franse eurocommissaris Moscovici hem in de wandelgangen het ene toevertrouwt om vijf minuten later, in de plenaire vergadering, het volstrekt tegenovergestelde te beweren.

Maar Adults in the Room stijgt uit boven het niveau van de sappige politieke roddel, en dat is te danken aan de onontkoombare analyse van de oud-minister over de patstelling in Europa. Het steeds verder afknijpen van de Griekse economie is niet alleen voor de Grieken funest, aldus Varoufakis, maar ook voor de schuldeisers zelf. Dan is alsmaar verder bezuinigen toch irrationeel?
