4.0 out of 5 stars A well balanced review of UK Banking in late 20th Century, 28 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book gave a concise account of the origins of Bank of Scotland ( BoS) -and its development ( warts and all) during the 1980s. Whilst excoriating the Chairman and Board of the merged BoS and Halifax--long before the Parliamentary Committee did-- it makes clear that the fundamental problems existed within all UK banks --so the sub title 'Best Bank in UK' could not be appled to BoS.
It also makes clear that Peter Cummings was the fall guy for the acts of others.
Have passed it on to my daughter with the instruction '-read-understand and apply the lessons'
