Aaron Brown Fischer Black and the Revolutionary Idea of Finance douglas  brown the black book of
Praise for FISCHER BLACK AND THE REVOLUTIONARY IDEA OF FINANCE «The story of Fischer Black. . . . is remarkable both because of the creativity of the man and because of the revolution he brought to Wall Street. . . . Mehrling's book is fascinating.» —FINANCIAL TIMES «A fascinating history of things we take for granted in our everyday financial lives.» —THE NEW YORK TIMES «Mehrling's book is essential reading for anyone interested in the development of modern finance or the life of an idiosyncratic creative genius.» —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY «Fischer Black was more than a vital force in the development of finance theory. He was also a character. Perry Mehrling has captured both sides of the picture: the evolution of thinking about the pricing of risk and time, as well as the thinkers, especially this fascinating eccentric, who worked it out.» —ROBERT M. SOLOW, Nobel laureate and Institute Professor of Economics, Emeritus, Massachusetts Institute of Technology «Although I worked closely with Fischer for nine years at Goldman Sachs and clearly recognized both his genius and the breadth and originality of his ideas, until I read this book, I had only the vaguest grasp of the source of his inspiration and no understanding at all of the source of his many idiosyncrasies.» —BOB LITTERMAN, Partner, Kepos Capital «Perry Mehrling has done a remarkable job of tracing the intellectual and personal development of one of the most original and complex thinkers of our generation. Fischer Black deserved it: a charming and brilliant book about a charming and brilliant man.» —ROBERT E. LUCAS JR., Nobel laureate and Professor of Economics, The University of Chicago
