THE QUANTS How a New Breed of Math Whizzes Conquered Wall Street and Nearly Destroyed It

by | Read by Mike Chamberlain

Contemporary Culture • 14.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

They were the new Huns of Wall Street—PhDs from the nation’s most prestigious schools, young geniuses in math, physics, and finance. Mike Chamberlain takes listeners on an exciting journey from their high schools and college dorm rooms to their boardrooms and yachts. His narrative power keeps listeners from empathizing too deeply with them when their house of cards comes tumbling down in the great crash. Chamberlain’s voice, pacing, and timing play both sides of this story in ways the author just couldn't in the medium of print. For those who want a finer focus on the causes of the global financial collapse we're just climbing out of—or for folks who just want specific people to blame—this book provides some answers.
