The Times

A Book of the Year 2015
Observer

[A] thoughtful sequel to [Cable's] earlier bestseller on the global financial crisis, both for what it says about the state of the nation and for its occasional insights into life in the coalition government.Chris Mullin
Observer

A remarkably rounded work... Cable has produced a book that makes a serious and relevant contribution to the continuing debate about banking, infrastructure, housing, China, executive pay, short-termism and many of the other topics which continue to top the business and political agenda.
Evening Standard

[After the Storm] is a lucid, erudite analysis of the global economy, and Britain's place in it, between 2010 and 2015, as viewed from the vantage point of a senior member of the coalition
