**THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER** Begin the new year with a fresh perspective on economics, capitalism, and the society we live in. Yanis Varoufakis, world renowned economist, writes to his daughter to teach her the hazards of capitalism. 'Why is there so much inequality?' asked Xenia to her father. Answering her questions in a series of accessible and tender letters, Varoufakis educates her to what economics and capitalism is and why it is so dangerous. Taking from memories of her childhood and a variety of well-known tales - from Oedipus and Faust to Frankenstein and The Matrix - Varoufakis turns Talking To My Daughter into an enjoyable and engaging read, without ever shying from the harder truths. Greece's former finance minister explains everything you need to know to understand why economics is the most important drama of our times. In answering his daughter's deceptively simple questions, Varoufakis disentangles our troubling world with remarkable clarity and child-like honesty, as well as inspiring us to make it a better one. 'Utterly accessible, deeply humane and startlingly original - a potent democratic tool at the perfect time' Naomi Klein

    Väldigt bra bok, men den vänder sig framför allt till unga personer som inte funderat så mycket kring detta. I början är det mycket grundläggande kunskap som måste täckas in, och den som läst och funderat kring kapitalism känner igen det mesta. Sedan blir det intressantare när Varoufakis blickar framåt.

It's great fun to read ... Varoufakis has started a debate here, and he's done it brilliantly * Evening Standard * Utterly accessible, deeply humane and startlingly original - a potent democratic tool at the perfect time -- Naomi Klein, author of No Is Not Enough A provocative, challenging, yet non-patronising analysis of the global economy. By using ancient myths, contemporary culture and family stories, Varoufakis makes the text intimate and accessible -- Nigel Jones * Observer * Experts have often found it easier to hide behind opaque language than to explain complex concepts in simple terms ... Varoufakis wants to smash this barrier. . . He equips his readers with the beginnings of a new language, and punctures myth after myth - anna minton, guardian -- Anna Minton * Guardian * Varoufakis's brief history of capitalism unspools with characteristic fluency and verve ... those seeking to better understand the 'black magic' of bankers should look no further * Financial Times *
