In this daring exposé of the hedge fund world, Nomad Trader chronicles an insider's account of the tyranny and the struggle that beset all who seek victory in financial markets.

A pretty fun ride

I have some modest prior exposure to markets, exchanges and trading. I found this easy to follow overall. I deeply appreciate this book being about what it claims to be about, rather than the painfully common forays into juvenile, exhibitionist vulgarity and shallowness the lower-quality (such as the Wolf of Wall Street) books rub our noses in. The author is a fairly decent guy, with an honest intellectual interest in all aspects and tools of trading. He also shows himself to be all too human and flawed, drunkenly injuring himself severely at one point, letting himself be sucked into partying and vicious hangovers at another, without dwelling too long on such things. The author's psychological bottoming-out in early-mid-story, and the hedge-fund's exotic eye-brain procedure, are weird, and I'm not sure what to make of those. But there is overall just enough color and human story to keep the trading sequences fresh. As an example of financial stuff I liked, the insider's view of the Quant Quake of 2007 was very well done, and not heard much of elsewhere. Viewing history through the lens of one transaction after another, with money (and a trader's future) riding on each move, works vividly.
