(Accounting Technician, September 2005) "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, 12th September 2005) "...recommended as readable to those with the intellectual curiosity to pursue financial theory..." (The Independent, 30 July 2005) "... a vignette-based business biography that captures the essence of this extraordinary man...engaging and entertaining..."

(Publishers Weekly, June 6, 2005) "A fascinating history of things we take for granted in our everyday financial lives." (The New York Times) "[Fischer Black and the Revolutionary Idea of Finance] does an exceptional job of capturing Black's spirit and gives an insightful inside account of the academic financial revolution." (Global Association of Risk Professionals magazine) "Mehrling skillfully interweaves the stories of Black's career, his sometimes-difficult personal life, and his contributions to finance and to economics ... In telling the story of Black's life, Mehrling casts light on a crucial, underappreciated aspect of the making of our current world." (Science magazine) "...Wit and insight" ( Financial Management, December 2006)

Reseña del editor:

Fischer Black and the Revolutionary Idea of Finance explores Fischer Black's intellectual journey from Harvard to the offices of ADL, from the University of Chicago to MIT, and then to Goldman Sachs. Years of research and interviews with Black's business and academic associates, as well as family and friends, are distilled into a scholarly yet personal story of the formation and development of the extraordinary mind and unique character of this unassuming renegade. This poignant book tells the story of one man's intellectual adventure at the very center of modern finance. It is a story about the birth of quantitative finance and financial engineering. It is also the story about the continuing human quest to defeat the "dark forces of time and ignorance," as John Maynard Keynes famously put it.
