15th January 2012: Trading Books For 2012

On my possible reading list for 2012 from Wiley Finance:


1. Michael Goodkin’s The Wrong Answer Faster: the inside story of the quantitative finance firm Numerix and the physics models that Goodkin developed to model financial markets. I look forward to some backgammon tips.


2. Maneet Ahuja’s The Alpha Masters: an insider’s guide to the money management strategies of hedge funds — I hope it’s on a par with Andrew Lo’s research (MIT).


3. Jack D. Schwager’s Hedge Fund Market Wizards: the fourth book of interviews in Schwager’s hugely influential Market Wizards series — will it live up to the excellence and insight of the previous three books?
