Financial Book of the Month

“Where did it all go wrong? That’s the million-dollar question Brian Walters seeks to answer in this idiosyncratic look at the bank’s spectacular fall from grace. Walters, a senior banker, was an employee working in the Yorkshire-based commercial finance division. His first hand inside account explores the causes of the crisis and whether it could have been averted. The book gives a fascinating insight, devoid of bitterness, into the events that led to Northern Rock being taken into public ownership. There’s some banking jargon to contend with, but this is a highly readable and gripping account that will appeal to people of all ages who are interested in matters financial.”
