I have been in banking all my life and I have worked in just about every area of the bank (except trust). But I always feel like there is a layer up at the top (upper management) that I don't know enough about. I am not going to Stonier or some other school that costs thousands of dollars and takes weeks to complete. But is there a book that someone might recommend that just gives a little detail about actual management of a bank---how we make money. I understand asset liability management to a degree, but I would like to read something that gives me more insight. Any suggestions?

If you are respected by management, and can pull it off, see if you can be secretary to some of the various committees in the bank (ALCO, loan, enterprise risk management, etc.), you would be getting valuable insight into your bank's running.

I don't know of any other way than by being part of the in-crowd.
Integrity. With it, nothing else matters. Without it, nothing else matters.

Depending on the size of your bank, I would try to discuss this with someone in your banks treasury department. I have found them to be a great source of knowledge (and no one ever asks them).
