The book carries pen-name David Von Leib, and is loosely veiled historical fiction looking back at the path of a variety of characters through various financial crises of the past 35-years. If you want to look under the covers of where today’s market volatility may find some of its roots, this book could be a fun read for some. If anyone out there believes that markets have a natural fractal rhythm tied to mathematical constants such as pi and phi, they will enjoy the book even more. Back in the day, I wrote what became the first set of ISDA docs, and traded some of the first OTC derivatives contracts at JP Morgan. Blame it all on me, if you want. The derivatives industry has since turned monstrous.
