Excellent anti-dote to conventional, dull finance text-books. Vibrant content, with interesting asides about crashes and investment collapses, careful graphics that elegantly show data and formulae in spreadsheets, pertinent cartoons enliven the text, and a DVD. Shorter version of "Paul Wilmott on quantitative finance 2nd edition", both books being frequently described by their initials, e.g. PWOQF2. ( )

Wilmott is an institution, and this book (or the three volume version) is one that any aspiring quant will do very well to read. ( )
