From stress-causer to stress-master?

Back from the Brink: Coping With Stress, by Nick Leeson with Ivan Tyrrell (Reed Publishing, $39.99):

It’s interesting that a man who caused immeasurable stress for a bunch of bankers is now the author of a book on how to cope with stress — I’d have thought rogue banker Nick Leeson was more of a carrier than a sufferer.

However, Leeson continues his story from where Rogue Trader left off.

He talks about his time in jail, the break-up of his marriage and his battle with cancer.

It’s a good read and apart from anything else, it’s interesting to get inside the head of the man who broke Barings Bank.
