At a time when everyone seems to think that lawyers, engineers and accountants are the people who will make it in life, this book busts that myth in an entertaining way. The author says in the book A Whole New Mind that we lived in an era of left-brain dominance. This era spawned the Information Age and gave rise a whole new set of people. The new era, he claims, will belong to the people with right-brain dominance. Right brain dominance gives people an all new set of character traits like inventiveness and empathy. The author uses this as the principal argument while explaining to us the contours of our world. In the book, the author lists various ways of improving your right brain that will help us survive in the Western world. According to Daniel Pink, there are six key points that are decisive in building your right brain: story, empathy, design, sympathy, play and meaning. In order to drive his point home, he compares this period to past periods of intense churn and change like the Industrial Revolution and the Renaissance.

Praise for Algorithmic Trading "Algorithmic Trading is an insightful book on quantitative trading written by a seasoned practitioner. What sets this book apart from many others in the space is the emphasis on real examples as opposed to just theory. Concepts are not only described, they are brought to life with actual trading strategies, which give the reader insight into how and why each strategy was developed, how it was implemented, and even how it was coded. This book is a valuable resource for anyone looking to create their own systematic trading strategies and those involved in manager selection, where the knowledge contained in this book will lead to a more informed and nuanced conversation with managers." DAREN SMITH, CFA, CAIA, FSA, Managing Director, Manager Selection & Portfolio Construction, University of Toronto Asset Management "Using an excellent selection of mean reversion and momentum strategies, Ernie explains the rationale behind each one, shows how to test it, how to improve it, and discusses implementation issues. His book is a careful, detailed exposition of the scientific method applied to strategy development. For serious retail traders, I know of no other book that provides this range of examples and level of detail. His discussions of how regime changes affect strategies, and of risk management, are invaluable bonuses." Roger Hunter, Mathematician and Algorithmic Trader
