Review for

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.
