This review is from: Rogue Trader (Paperback)
I read this book as preparation for a lunch I was having with Nick Leeson himself.
The book highlighted to me that banking has a side to it that really should not be allowed. It is just gambling minute by minute, hour by hour and every day with savers money. They pay to get the best gamblers to do it. That activity does not add any value other than entertainment. The book highlights that very well. Nick comes across as a victim of both himself and his circumstances. After meeting him I realized he was just an ordinary bloke and a nice one at that. I found the book a great read.
