While this glossary definitely has application to bank directors, I would recommend every bank to have a copy.  We all know that banking has its own language and bankers love to use it!  This is the best book I know that has all the banking terms you would ever possibly need to know.  It’s one that I have in my briefcase at all times. –Byron
