Publisher's Summary

In My Life as a Quant, Emanuel Derman relives his exciting journey as one of the first high-energy particle physicists to migrate to Wall Street. Derman details his adventures in this field - analyzing the incompatible personas of traders and quants, and discussing the dissimilar nature of knowledge in physics and finance. Throughout this tale, he also reflects on the appropriate way to apply the refined methods of physics to the hurly-burly world of markets.

Not what I expected, but enjoyable.

I'd expected the book to be predominantly about finance but it's almost as much about physics. Luckily, I'm interested in both so I enjoyed it but I could imagine it putting some people off.
