Nora Rosendahl wins the Bracken Bower Prize 2016
Sebastian Mallaby saw off strong competition from a shortlist of titles that ranged in theme from the gender imbalance to the productivity gap, to win the £30,000 prize. Each of the five runners-up received a cheque for £10,000.
Vivian Hunt commented, “The Man Who Knew casts a bright light on the life and times of a central banker who shaped our modern economy. This book marries the biographer's humanising touch with a fascinating inside look at how policy decisions are actually reached in the real world.”
