really liked it

Great overview of the Quants that took over Wall Street. One of the major things I learned is that you can't treat a Complex Adaptive System with the rules of Physics. Physics is in the end simple and has simple rules, but life and economics which are based on life do not follow that model. They are more biological in nature.
