Bankers Like Us

The ex-banker and current technologist’s latest book, Bankers Like Us, explores the fact that “despite 15 years of digitization, the financial services is behind every other sector in the economy”.

The world is going digital, and banking is trying to keep up. But why is it so difficult? This book explores the human and structural barriers to technological progress in banking.

It argues that the real change won’t come from outsiders or future generations but from people within the industry. 

This book will resonate with anyone no matter where you reside on this journey, whether newbie or old guard. If you want to be part of this change, you need to understand all about the messy middle that Leda so expertly describes in this book. If you read this book and it doesn’t resonate, then I suggest you think about stepping aside.
