I was gladly impressed by C. Marrison¿s Book when I was looking for a good introduction on risk, that could help me in my work. I am involved in advising organizations who fund projects in developing countries. Therefore to find a plain English yet carefully crafted step by step explanation of risk and how to measure it and manage it was a boon for people like me. Chapter 3 was particularly useful since I am not up to date in this kind of statistical tools. Although I am not precisely a banker who needs an in depth working knowledge of risk management and risk measurement, this type of thorough introduction in a single readable volume provides a very useful set of tools to understand and untangle the complex world of risk taking through funding. So much so in the face of growing concern over big and not so big corporations doctoring their accounting data, and the uncertainties of international funding of projects in third world countries.
