Hits a lot of bases clearly, broad but not deep

This book does a pretty remarkable job as a short title in covering so many ideas, tools and approaches, for finance. What is "beta"? What are "the Greeks?" It ranges quite far and wide within the sub-field, with basic definitions and examples. A loose familiarity with this field and its concepts would maximize the listener's benefit. The narrator, with one o;f the stronger baritone voices I've heard, is competent.

Golden nuggets

It was an inspiring book to remember to have fun and go with the flow. The book covered little golden nuggets that may be new or not so new. It is good to have a reminder!

Make you consider

A lot of people invest in stocks or other investment vehicles without analyzing the risks that could be involved. Every beginner investor should definitely listen to this book before making any investment decision.

An ok book

As someone that manages hedging and risk management teams myself, this is certainly a book that I would recommend to practitioners. Finally, it is clear that the author and the people he thanked in the acknowledgments spent quite a bit of time proofreading the final guidance. The writing is clear, well-articulated, and thoughtful.

great overview

Explains things sufficiently to ensure you appreciate and understand the facts and concepts of the Risk Management Framework. As a Business Architect working in Risk for Banks I find the book an excellent source of reference to ensure my own logic is sound.

very practical

Provides a structured approach to project risk management. Somewhat redundant presentation style. Briefly discusses program risk management and quantitative risk analysis. Many templates are provided. Consider this a very good entry level discussion of risk management.

Soiled method

This is a solid method. However, due to the detail and amount of effort to maintain and create the documentation, I wonder how many companies have deployed this methodology with success?

Excellent narration

this is written for an audience with genuine interest risk management primarily focused on financial firms. Well written, especially for those with some working knowledge of the subject. While not a textbook, it has gotten large and may not be the best choice for a curious first timer.

had a lot of information

A brief history of the Basel regulation is given and how important volatility is for the risk management. The different forms of value at risk is introduced and how it is used in the different risk measurement. It is the main book on the theme and I think the practical action will take place in the application of the theory. No mater how long it is relevant. You can read it with the basic skills in maths and no long mathematical treatise are used. It is easy to understand.

Good and Realistic!!!

A wonderful overview of financial risk management. I am not a financial analyst, but I can appreciate the clearly described systems put in place to adjust for risk. The book certainly gives a greater appreciation of what financial analysts are considering when they look at a company's balance sheet.
