Revue de presse

A Financial Times Best Book of 2014

“He’s written a really good book — we might as well get that out of the way, as so much else about Timothy F. Geithner remains unsettled… There’s hardly a moment in Geithner’s story when the reader feels he is being anything but straightforward — a near-superhuman feat for someone who spent so much time in public life defending himself from careless and dishonest personal attacks. The decisions he made are easier to criticize than they are to improve upon. I doubt many readers will put his book down and think the man did anything but his best. On his feet he might have stammered and wavered. That in itself was always a sign he was unusually brave.” –Michael Lewis, New York Times Book Review

“An intimate take on the financial crisis… gripping… conveys in visceral terms just how precarious things were during the crisis, just how frightened many first responders were, and just what an achievement it was to avert a major depression… [Geithner] demonstrates that he can discuss economics in an accessible fashion, making the situation the country faced in 2008 and 2009 tactile, comprehensible—and harrowing—to the lay reader. Along the way, he also gives us a telling portrait of himself.” New York Times
 
“A how-to manual for anyone faced with a financial crisis… Mr Geithner was known for his brutal candor, and as an author, he does not disappoint.” —The Economist

 “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

“Sharply worded and candid memoir.” —Financial Times

“Geithner does an admirable job of explaining the origins and complexities of the crisis for the average person. But there’s enough detail and retrospective lessons-learned to make it valuable for students of financial history….fast-paced and colorful….Stress Test goes beyond other crisis books.” –Los Angeles Times
 
“Throughout Stress Test, one gains a deep appreciation for the heart-pumping decisions made by Geithner and his colleagues from 2007 through 2012. And he makes a compelling case that overhwelming force is necessary in crisis, and that the measures taken by the Fed and two successive administrations prevented even more pain for ordinary Americans.” –WashingtonPost.com

“An unsparing insider’s account of the financial crisis from the former Secretary of the Treasury, unpacking the hard decisions and terrible trade-offs that devastated the economy but staved off a deep, lasting depression.” —TIME.com

“The central irony of Stress Test, the new memoir by former U.S. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, is that a guy who was accused of being a lousy communicator while in office has penned a book that is such a good read…I’ve now read four or five of these first drafts of the history of the Great Recession, and I believe Stress Test represents the biggest contribution of the bunch.” —Bill Gates

“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
 
“Very few important subjects in American history have been the subject of as much disinformation and deliberate distortion as the events surrounding the financial crisis that broke in 2008. Tim Geithner’s candid, clear-headed, and refreshingly self-effacing account of his role in formulating the federal government’s response is a very welcome antidote. Geithner’s book is a triple threat: it is first-rate economic history, insightful political science, and, most important, a cogent exposition of the importance of adhering to the policies adopted in the aftermath of the crisis if we are to succeed in diminishing the likelihood of any recurrence.” —Barney Frank
 
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. Timothy Geithner brings a complex story to life with telling anecdotes and personal reflections.” —Doris Kearns Goodwin
 
“This is a lucid, fascinating, and extremely important book. Every American should read it. 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
 
“The country owes Tim Geithner great appreciation for his role in overcoming the financial crisis of 2008.  He has now indebted it further with writing a thoughtful, very readable and informative account of the conduct of policy at the edge of disaster.” —Henry A. Kissinger
 
 
 

Présentation de l'éditeur

From the former Treasury Secretary, the definitive account of the unprecedented effort to save the U.S. economy from collapse in the wake of the worst global financial crisis since the Great Depression

On 26 January, 2009, during the depths of the financial crisis and having just completed five years as President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Timothy F. Geithner was sworn in by President Barack Obama as the seventy-fifth Secretary of the Treasury of the United States. Now, in a strikingly candid, riveting, and historically illuminating memoir, Geithner takes readers behind the scenes during the darkest moments of the crisis. Swift, decisive, and creative action was required to avert a second Great Depression, but policy makers faced a fog of uncertainty, with no good options and the risk of catastrophic outcomes.

Stress Test: Reflections on Financial Crises takes us inside the room, explaining in accessible and forthright terms the hard choices and politically unpalatable decisions that Geithner and others in the Obama administration made during the crisis and recovery. He discusses the most controversial moments of his tenures at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and at the Treasury, including the harrowing weekend Lehman Brothers went bankrupt; the searing crucible of the AIG bonuses controversy; the development of his widely criticized but ultimately successful plan in early 2009 to end the crisis; the bracing fight for the most sweeping financial reforms in seventy years; and the lingering aftershocks of the crisis, including high unemployment, the fiscal battles, and Europe’s repeated flirtations with the economic abyss.

Geithner also shares his personal and professional recollections of key players such as President Obama, Ben Bernanke, Hank Paulson, and Larry Summers, among others, and examines the tensions between politics and policy that have come to dominate discussions of the U.S. economy. An insider’s account of how the Obama administration saved the economy but lost the American people, Stress Test reveals a side of Timothy Geithner that only few have seen.

A pithy and fast-moving exposé of this most complex topic. Geithner is especially good on the psychology of market panics and makes a very convincing case of the need for massive intervention by central banks in order to stem systemic unravelling of the financial system. He dismisses the fears of "moral hazard" proponents such as those in EU monetary circles, who consider that bail-outs of major institutions during crises incentivise risky behaviour.

I was interested by his earlier experiences with earlier crises in Mexico & Thailand. I appreciated his modesty and willingness to explain his mistakes, and to share credit with others

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The detail is amazing, but not in the least boring 30 juin 2017
Par Barbara E. Goll - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is user friendly, well written and well thought out. It shows that Obama chose his Secretary of the Treasury very wisely. The detail is amazing, but not in the least boring. It reads like a novel. Geithner was the exact right man for the job, already skilled and savvy in the knowledge of how to go about rescuing nations from economic crisis. This is well worth the read and impressive. Geithner emerges as a very likable and admirable human being, who just happened to be in the right time and place to save us from Depression 2.0.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another great view on the financial crisis 2 mai 2016
Par LSBerg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Overall I really liked this book. While Tim Geithner is not an writer and his style is definitely not of a thriller, the portrait of the crisis from his view definitely contributes to the overall understanding of the financial crisis of 2008.
This book should not be taken as "stand-alone" but read in the context of all the other ones out there about the crisis itself. It helps one to form their opinions in a clear and more fair way in my opinion.
Finally, this book also help show that the work of the Treasury, Federal Reserve, and other institutions that prevented the crisis relied on countless individuals who never get recognized for their hard work and countless hours helping make this country better. My admiration and gratitude only got bigger after reading this account.

Tim Geithner presents a very personal account of the financial crisis and the aftermath. It was a great story that made me feel like i was there in the room as it happened. It can get technical at times but Tim helps you go through to understand. A must read for those wanting to understand the actors involves.

Par John V - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book is the single best insider look at the events leading up to the financial crisis that was unleashed in September 2008. Mr. Geithner's text is well written, often humorous, and clearly describes the policy dilemmas faced by the Federal Reserve (Bernanke), the U.S. Treasury (Paulson), and the FDIC (Baird). The book is not technical and can be read by anyone interested in one key person's insights and role in events leading up to the global financial crisis and actions taken through 2012. Mr. Paulson has published his views from Treasury and we are waiting for Dr. Bernanke to do the same for his role as Fed chairman. For now, it is not possible to understand how actions taken by both the Federal Reserve and Treasury prevented the housing collapse from creating far more economic damage than it did without reading this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Our Financial Syustem 8 juillet 2014
Par Donald A. Baer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I greatly enjoyed Mr. Geitner's book as it was informative and well written. Most refreshing was his humility and personal observation not only of his faults and reservations of himself but his forthright and clear explanation of the events he inherited but the plans and programs he created and instituted, some successful and some not. I was also impressed with his wide and impressive use of his extensive vocabulary.
I would make two critical observations and that is he would often repeat the "message" he was attempting to convey in order to "hammer" it home which would become a bit tiresome and the read too "wordy" but this was minor in terms of the over-all enjoyment.
