Traders, Guns and Money by Satyajit Das
28 Aug 12
The worldwide bestselling Traders, Guns and Money is back in a brand new smaller format edition, publishing this August by Financial Times Publishing. Satyajit Das’ hugely successful book reveals the truth about derivatives: those financial tools memorably described by Warren Buffet as ‘financial weapons of mass destruction’. In this book Das introduces readers to the players and the practices of derivatives trading and reveals how the real money is made and lost.
This sensational and controversial first person account is a wickedly comic expose of the culture, games and pure deceptions played out every day in trading rooms around the world and played out with other people’s money. This is an accessible read for anyone involved in the dazzling world of derivatives, or for anyone who feels in the quiet about the financial markets. Traders, Guns and Money will tell the story and entertain at the same time.
‘The sexier side of finance ... at last ... a convincing picture of what life is like in today’s modern financial industry.’
‘…a distinctly timely book…Traders, Guns and Money tries to reach out to the mathematically challenged to explain how the world of derivatives “really” works’.
Gillian Tett, Financial Times
‘....more riveting than the Da Vinci Code...in the mould of Liars’ Poker...an insider’s account of how derivatives markets work...’
Goola Warden, The Edge
‘…a beginner’s guide to the often unsavoury and murky world of trading…a surprisingly gripping account…’
