Book Review: Corporate Finance and Investment: Decisions and Strategies

Corporate Finance And Investment: Decisions & StrategiesCorporate Finance And Investment: Decisions & Strategies by Richard Pike

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was helpful in helping me to understand the principles of corporate finance, and develop the key tools to apply it in the workplace.
I will probably keep dipping into it throughout my career. It’s well-rounded, covering a range of topics from Islamic Finance to behavioural finance. I think it is a must-read for MBA students.

Review: Mathenauts: Tales of Mathematical Wonder

Mathenauts: Tales of Mathematical Wonder
Mathenauts: Tales of Mathematical Wonder by Rudy Rucker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read this book years ago, and it has stayed with me. I was lucky enough to find a copy for 50p in a bookshop close to the University of Glasgow, and it’s stayed with me for about twenty years. It’s been part of my life.
Although it has topics like Goedel’s Theorem, fourth dimension, the liar paradox (“This sentence is false.”) and even fun wordplays, you don’t have to be a maths genius to read, understand and enjoy this book. You’ll read accessible and intriguing fiction stories which will ignite your imagination, and your interest in maths. You’ll absorb these topics better.
Since the book has a series of short stories, you’ll find, naturally, that some speak to you more than others. Isaac Asimov’s story has stayed with me, in particular – I won’t spoil it for you.
