I found this on Wilmott, imo will be an interesting read. FWIW I'm not affiliated w/ the author or Wilmott! http://books.global-investor.com/books/23007.htm?ginPtrCode=10202&identifi --RS Description of The Poker Face of Wall Street An engaging look at how the culture of poker and modern finance on Wall Street are inextricably linked Since the 1800s, the world of poker and world of commerce and finance have lived in each other's long historical shadow. Truth is, even today it's hard to pull the two apart. The Poker Face of Wall Street captures the color of both of these worlds and highlights the real lessons that risk-takers on Wall Street and the high rollers in Vegas can learn from one another. Financial professional and lifelong poker player Aaron Brown knows how fine the line is between risk-taking skill and ruin.
