I had heard about some of the connections between physics and finance in school, and this book helped to fill in a lot of the blank spots. It was easy to read. It focused on the history of these connections, which is OK, because you can get the technical details in other places, some of which are listed in the book. Also, could someone from B&N check out the functionality of this recommendation part of the web page? I couldn't simply write a recommendation and submit it; I had to work to shoehorn this recommendation into the system.
