Abstract: With his trademark stories, vignettes, paradoxes, and puzzles, John Allen Paulos addresses every thinking reader's curiosity about the market - Is it efficient? Is it rational? How should one pick stocks? Can one quantify risk? What are the most common scams? Is there a way to really outperform the major indexes? Can a deeper knowledge of mathematics help beat the odds? This wry and illuminating book is for armchair mathematicians, market followers, or anyone who wants to know how markets work.
