Anne Boden book

I just spotted this whilst browsing Amazon:

I think the title’s a bit much (saying you’re the one who “changed banking forever” feels a bit self-aggrandising!), but I guess it’s a case of waiting until March to see what she actually says – I shall reserve judgement!

I think I might buy it (I’ve been given some Amazon gift cards for Christmas, hence the browsing) and report back once I’ve had a read.

Despite being in love with Monzo, I expect this book to be cool. Not everyday you get to read a book on how someone started their own bank :grin: @tom any chance you’re writing something similar? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I’ve pre-ordered the Kindle edition.

The fact it’s in Starling branding makes me think otherwise

They’ll just be using the Starling colours because that’s where she is now. Might as well use it to it’s full marketing potential

Will it be as factual as some of their marketing?

I don’t know why I expected any different from you lol

I think I’ll get a copy - I’d like to better understand Anne’s vision, especially considering her expertise in commercial banking :+1:

Has this book been pulled? Unavailable to pre order

Yes

Still available for pre-order from Waterstones at £20 - seems a bit extreme tbf

It’s definitely been cancelled/postponed indefinitely.

Oh good,I wonder what the fallout was / why tom left Straling to begin mon(d)zo? I wonder what background politics may be involved.
