Back from the Brink by Nick Leeson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Nick Leeson tells his remarkable story post Rogue Trader and being responsible for the biggest financial scandal of the last century - including his four and a half years in a gang-ridden Singapore jail, the break-up of his marriage, dealing with cancer and recovering to begin a new life. Through a series of conversations with renowned psychologist Ivan Tyrell, Leeson's story and behaviour is related in ways common to us all, but which were hugely magnified in his case. Part autobiography, part practical self-help guide for surviving stress, through a series of no-holds barred interviews, and with Nick's story as the backbone of the book, eminent psychologist Ivan Tyrrell examines areas of stress common to us all but which were magnified in Leeson's case. Devoid of psychobabble, Tyrrell's clear scientific analysis looks at Leeson's method of combating extreme circumstances to recover from illness and despair. Tyrrell's analysis and suggestions for coping strategies are inspirational, have solid scientific grounding, and bring this personal story to the general reader with illuminating insight.
