Michael Fingleton ran Irish Nationwide Building as his own personal banking fiefdom, taking it from the dizzy heights of success and eventually bringing it down at a cost of 5.4 billion Euro to the Irish taxpayer. One of the architects of the most debilitating financial crisis that Ireland has experienced, he has escaped scrutiny until now. Here the authors reveal an intriguing and complex character. This book will take readers into the world of Michael Fingleton, providing an insight into the personality, career, and power of a man who took a tiny building society from obscurity to profitability and then to ruin. ""[The authors] point the finger at the failure of the society's internal systems and controls, and the overweening dominance of one man.""--Irish Voice, Aug. 13, 2013
