“Against the Gods”:http://www.amazon.com/dp/0471295639/ : The Remarkable Story of Risk (Paperback) by Peter L. Bernstein
The author talked about the history of statistics and other theories and how they are applied to finance. The risk in this book is mostly about the risk of doing business. I find the parts about statistics hard to follow if you don’t already understand the mathematical concepts. Otherwise, it is very well written book. At the end, the author discussed more about financial markets which is interesting.
