In this portion of the website, I will add reviews of various books that I personally find relevant to the practice of Risk Management and Trading Management. Many of these books are not in the "canon", but probably should be. If you want the old standards of books of risk management technique and academic descriptions of VAR, you can find them in my links page... It seems to me that what is called for is a fresh approach, highlighting qualitative intelligence and critical thought, including books accessible to the layman. In particular, it seems appropriate for me to emphasise the wealth of literature on previous financial crises, and certainly topical.

I welcome any suggestions as well. You can e-mail suggestions to me by clicking the "Contact Me" link. Please note your reactions in my Guestbook and feel free to criticise.
