In 2008 Hodder & Stoughton published Robert Peston's latest book, Who Runs Britain? How the Super-Rich are Changing our Lives. It explains the nature of the boom, and why we're now having to pay the price for excess; or as The Guardian described it, 'how Labour glorified the City and (allowed it to) put all the nation's economic eggs into one dangerous basket of fizzy finance. Robert has since presented Super Rich: The Greed Game for BBC2, on the causes and consequences of the Credit Crunch. Robert Peston is also author of Brown's Britain, a biography of the then Chancellor which was heralded by Sir Howard Davies, director of the London School of Economics, as 'a book of unusual political significance'.

In 2015 Robert joined ITV as their political editor.
