An excellent introduction to the basics of banking. Shines a bright light into the murky world of funding, liquidity management, and the banking book. An easy to read yet comprehensive tour of the world of treasury with careful explanations and clear examples. Written post the 2008 crisis it gives clear examples of the mechanics of how some of the issues unfolded. Should be on the bookshelves of all who work in the banking industry, and will be a book you return to frequently to check on the details of how particular aspects of banking function.
