    I am trying to clean up my closets, so a bunch of books that are/were related to my life in finance have to make room for other stuff. All of this is free for the taking if you want to pick it up yourself or arrange it with someone from here to ship it to you. The offer expires in a week or so unless you PM me, I am going to throw these out.

    Here is a list of titles and authors, you can search on the Amazon for the details:
    Inflation Linked Products, Benaben
    Structured Equity Derivatives, Kat
    Dynamic Hedging, Taleb
    Handbook for Fixed Income Securities, Fabozzi
    Monte Carlo Methods in Finance, Jackel
    A foreign exchange primer, Shama
    The Treasury Bond Basis, Burghard and Belton
    Advance Financial Modelling using Excel and VBA, Jackson and Staunton
    Colateralized Debt Obligations, Tavakoli
    Baron's Dictionary of Finance and Investment Terms
    When Genius Failed, Lowenstein
    Economics, Wessels
    Learning Perl, Schwartz
    Writing Excel Macros, Roman

    Well, I have made a lot of money over the years in this business and yes, I have read these books. However, as we all know, correlation does not equal causality.

    PS. I think the last book in the list is exactly about people like yourself.
     
  5. But , since you aren't selling them , ill take your word for it.

    I have most of those books. All look pretty good to me. If anyone lives in the NY area you should pick them up.

    Some books have been spoken for, however, "should the mission fail" they will be back here. The residual list is:

    Inflation Linked Products, Benaben
    A foreign exchange primer, Shama
    Colateralized Debt Obligations, Tavakoli
    Baron's Dictionary of Finance and Investment Terms (haha)
    Economics, Wessels
    Learning Perl, Schwartz
    Writing Excel Macros, Roman
    The Great Wave, Fischer
    The Bell Curve, Herrenstein and Murray (you really need it if you work for a bank)


    Btw, I highly recommend the Great Wave, one of the best macro books about inflation that I have ever read.
     
  8. Don't mean to sidetrack, but over Thanksgiving I was told to read Dying of Money, supposed to be a particularly good book on a similar topic.

  9. looks interesting.

    I feel like such a sleuth (went through plenty of dead links, etc) the book is online for free.
