This insider's account of the valiant attempt to reform Nigeria's economy will inspire anyone committed to changing the course of their country.(Joseph E. Stiglitz, Nobel laureate in Economic Sciences, 2001)
This extremely informative and thought-provoking book provides a masterful account of the interplay of technical economic management and political will constrained by vested interest in undertaking transformative reforms in developing countries. Every page speaks to the Liberian experience in microcosm. This will be required reading by the Cabinet and students in our institutions of higher learning. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala remains a courageous champion for sound economic management and performance.(Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of Liberia)
An important book which incisively reveals what the real barriers to development are, and the political constraints to removing them. Inspiring and compulsory reading for development scholars and practitioners.(James Robinson, David Florence Professor of Government, Harvard University)

Throughout her incarnations as the corruption cop, finance minister, tough decision maker, and managing director she has been and remains a great friend and an inspiring mentor. This is an essential guidebook for reformers everywhere.(Bono)
