Inhaltsangabe zu "My Life as a Quant"
"My Life as a Quant, by Emanuel Derman is, indeed, a perfect memoir, as Derman, a South African-born physicist turned financial engineer, is a perfect memoirist." --Grant's Interest Rate Observer
"That sense of being an intruder in outlaw territory lends an intriguing mood to Derman's My Life as a Quant, a literate and entertaining memoir."--BusinessWeek
"Derman's memoir of his transition from mathematical physicist to expert finance whiz at Goldman Sachs and Salomon Brothers reads like a novel, but tells a lot about brains applied to making money grow."--Paul A. Samuelson, MIT, Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences, 1970
"Elegantly written by a gifted observer who was a pioneering member of the new profession of financial engineering? with an evident affection both for finance as a science and for the scientists who practice it. Derman's portrait of how the academics brought their new financial science to the world of business and his descriptions of the late and extraordinary genius Fischer Black who became his mentor, reveal a surprising humanity where it might be least expected."--Stephen Ross, Franco Modigliani Professor of Finance and Economics, Sloan School, MIT
" a deep and elegant exploration by a thinker who moved from the hardest of all sciences (physics) to the softest of the soft (finance). Derman is a different class of thinker? I know of no other book that bridges the two cultures."--Nassim Taleb, author of The Black Swan and Fooled by Randomness
