    Financial economist George G. Szpiro here tells the fascinating stories of the pioneers of mathematical finance who conducted the search for the elusive options pricing formula. From the broker's assistant who published the first mathematical explanation of financial markets to Albert Einstein and other scientists, Pricing the Future retraces the historical and intellectual developments that ultimately led to the widespread use of mathematical models to drive investment strategies on Wall Street.

    If you could sum up Pricing the Future in three words, what would they be?

    If you're interested in the subject - best historical book ever!


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    I love the stories of people who have contributed to the evolution of the option pricing model. Each one is presented in a very well balanced and not overwhelming ratios of biographical details, historical connections and finally, the essence of their contribution. Amazingly gracefull cadence of writing throughout all book. Loved listening to it so much, that I have swallowed last 3 hours in one bite while walking around wall street neighborhoods in manhattan, with final chapter streaming though my ears as I was gazing at the Goldman Sachs building being bathed in a sunset light across the Hudson river.. Romantic, huh? No, really, the book is that great! ;)
