Peter Pook, Banking on Form

Banking on Form is an amusing and irreverent record of a powerfully built young athlete who became caught up in the world of Banking.


The problems confronting young Pook as he struggles to combine the art of Banking with sex, body-building and

a football career—a feat which understandably threatens to overwhelm him  until a clever Austrian  gentleman steps in  with a timely solution are told in  fast tempo and with dry humour.


In the process, to the lay reader’s delight and edification at least, Pook reveals the mysteries of the British banking system; becomes entangled in the night-life of Paris; develops into the strong-man of  the financial world; plays soccer on the bloodfeud principle, and antagonises every person he comes in contact with—including himself.


During the resultant chaos the Banks, amongst others, undergo a gentle pulling of their pin-striped legs. Pook sums up his own feelings when he says “Reading How

to Win Friends and Influence People doesn’t seem to have done me much good. All I can do is to lose friends and injure people.” But it is all good clean fun, and the laughter  which  will follow the earnest young man through his hectic career will win him plenty of friends among readers—at any rate outside the ranks of bankers.
