Unless you already are in the trade or you want to write your own trading programmes, please give this a pass. This quantitative analysis based book is definitely beyond those without very strong statistics and programming capabilities. Sorry to tell you that as an MBA, CFA pro trader, I could grasp at most 30% of the modeling techniques described. Certainly the CDROM bundled did help. However, I doubt how many readers would have that patience and resource to collect and input the data needed.
