I am already enrolled in MSc Quantitative Finance and classes will be starting next Monday. As an introduction to the course, the Prof is asking us to read a book called My Life as a Quant which is very fascinating. It details the journey on how he transited from a research student to a quant on the Wall Street when quant was yet a norm in those days. It is also telling me what are the skills that I am currently lacking to become a real quant.
Read it and tell me what you think of it.
