As you ponder a career in quant finance and read this blog, don’t forget to check out my Quant Career Bookstore (TM), serviced by Amazon.com. You don’t need to buy every book there; if you have access to a library, utilize that resource first.
If you do order from Amazon, be aware that they currently offer free trials of their Amazon Prime membership whereby you get two-day shipping for free, with no minimum per order. If you don’t want to continue beyond the trial period, just go to your account page and click a button to stop auto-renewal of membership. Very easy.
If you have any excellent quant-oriented books to recommend, please let me know via e-mail; thanks in advance.
