Book of the Week: Poker Face of Wall Street

I often drive-by mention books I’m reading here, but I don’t always jump up and down and say visitors should read something. This time I’m saying that. Despite a woeful title, “The Poker Face of Wall Street” is great reading on quant finance, gambling, and risk.

It’s just out in paperback, so go get it.

    Is it a good read for those who don’t have PhD’s in finance or business, but work in business!?!

  2. Yup, for sure. It’s safe :-)
