Our times are very unique indeed and especially in the context of today's dynamic environment, where frequent technology led innovations are disrupting the retail banking & payment industry like never before. In this background, many of our assumptions, predictions and analysis of this industry can quickly become outdated and is therefore necessary to constantly revisit them more often out of sheer necessity, so as to be on top of things quickly and steer one's organisation successfully.

Brett's book therefore is very timely and can be used to vet one's strategy and fine tune as required based on the fresh data that he is presenting. I especially liked his approach of seeking inputs / data from the key players directly & presenting them in an interview format, thereby helping the readers to do their own assessment as well and in turn agree/disagree with Brett's interpretation and his views.

Interesting read on the changes in banking due to the disruption caused by Fintech. If you work with banks and/ or credit unions, this is a must read. The book provides plenty of insight on the current climate and future change due to the Fintech disruption. A good sequel to Bank 2.0 and Bank 3.0. I bought this for my sales teams so that they could be better prepared for conversations with the C-Suites at our credit union partners.

Book for people interested in fintech. Some interesting case studies, but overall could be half the size if it was a typical book not collections of interviews with introductions and summaries. I would expect more for this price of a book. Case studies like mBank were missing. Mentioned American banks are really not that innovative in comparison to what you can see e.g. In Poland

Read it back-to-back! Brett King captures an insightful discussion with some of the brightest minds on the subject and paints a pretty good picture of what the future of the banking industry is bound to look like. A must-read for anyone wants to be a change leader in reshaping banking and payment services in the years ahead.

Banks will be broken down, stripped, reimagined and built again into a modern, tech savvy useful alternative to the stale experiences that exist today. It's a now thing - not a tomorrow thing. Great read.

More than a simple tittle, Breaking Banks is a trully empiric study about the future of the worldwide traditional financial institutes which make us to reflect how important is these companies reinvent themselves for facing the digital challenge along the next years.

As others mentioned, this book is more about interviews with different people rather than a continous writing. It covers all aspects of the latest in Banking including lending, P2P, PFM etc

I lead digital innovation at a large bank and Brett is always great inspiration. The book is a light and easy read but the content is deep and thought provoking. Go Brett!

I enjoyed the book, and it is something bankers should read, but keep in the proper context. There is no question technology is going to change how banking is done - and is a threat to community banks. Any thought, though, that start-up technology-based banks are going to be more than niche players is missing one major point - along with technological change comes the greater exposure to cyber-attacks. The big banks, for all their faults, are better able to withstand and pay for this problem, and at least one person interviewed in the book did note that all these changes play into the hands of the big banks.

It is a good read, though, if you do not worry too much about who wins or loses, but what is coming. There is no question that technology is going to drastically change how banking is done, and this book is quite good on some of changes to expect.

Very good collection of different views of the future of banking with Brett's analysis on top of it. If you are from the industry or just curious it is a must read.
