this is a general, not a specific, review 7 April 2010
By Bachelier - Published on
Format: Hardcover
After you get over the sticker shock, you realize that this item is premium priced for the "trading desk bookshelf" expense account. And also now contains material that is eleven years old.

So with that said it is probably not worth acquiring on an individual basis unless you are a one-man Risk Management department.


Well, one of the utilities of this collection (and it is a "collection" not a single, coherent theme topic subject or focus) is its breadth. It is also a weakness: no one (except magazine editors or a few academics) follows or works in *all* of these topics.

"Risk management" itself is a topic with a library full of volumes and papers (all rapidly aging, including those included here), so if the latest technical papers form GARP or PRMIA don't fill you up, some of the selections here present alternative views on tails icebergs and jumps and liquidity (ands some prophetic ones, now that we are post 2009).

The bread and butter sections are on equity modeling, portfolio formation, and interest rate curves. All the papers are of a quality you would find in a solid refereed journal, but published a bit faster than the agonizingly slow process usually found in academic circles.

The authors are all well-known academics who also consult or are well known as contributing to the dialogue between pure researchers, researchers in profit centers, and traders. Their writing is honed by years of experience and most are direct and solid in demonstrating their points.

But the question for me remains, is there ONE audience member whom this volume is aimed for? Or is it just an ornament for the bookshelf of whatever suit is in charge of the risk management shop this month?

Another garbage production by Paul Wilmott 8 Nov. 2013
By playerjoe - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Imagine one day Kim Kardashian or Snooki will write a book about their infinite wisdom or philosophical views. Would you pay for this $100?

Now suppose somebody with equal qualifications but much more pretentious and less physically attractive tries to sell you his writings for the same amount. Is it a good deal?

The book is garbage, both from academic and practitioners perspectives. To convince yourself that this is the case you don't need to spend $100.
