In praise of Paul Wilmott and his previous works
Some people write for fame, some for money. Most academics write books to impress the professor down the corridor so that one day they will be the professor down the corridor everyone is trying to impress. Uniquely, Paul Wilmott writes to inform and educate his readers, to convey ideas, and, most importantly, to show them how to do it.
His greatest admirers are his readers. So, instead of endorsements from the great and the good, here are the words of his fans. Their sometimes unique spelling has been retained.
I found it to be easily the best book that I have read/worked through on the subject.
I thought it might amuse you to know that I think your book got me a job!
I’d like to say that this is a great book but you already know that!
I’m a junior derivatives trader in Mexico City. I’ve seen your book and I have only one coment: SEXY!
Loved your book, which is a breath of fresh air, amongst all those arid derivatives books!! It really is in a class of its own. I have wasted so much money on stupid derivative books which too elementary or way too complicated.
Purchased both Quant Finance and Derivatives a couple of days ago. Will not be able to afford steak or wine for weeks as a result.
