I was surprised by a low number of pages but hugely rewarded by the content! MATLAB code is simply great!

I’m great fan of Pawel website and his first ebook extends his credibility as a quant with deep understanding of financial problems.

I am presently studying for my CFA level 2 in which most of the concepts are covered in your book as well and therefore it is easy to relate to them.
