Puzzles of Finance: Six Practical Problems and Their Remarkable Solutions


. . . shining clarity and enviable originality.
-Peter L. Bernstein, author of Against the Gods

Critical Praise for PUZZLES OF FINANCE

"An extraordinary combination of the elements of finance, commonsense wisdom, sparkling humor, shining clarity, and enviable originality. This is a potent blend by any standard of measurement. Longtime Kritzman watchers, however, would anticipate nothing less."
-Peter L. Bernstein, author, Against the Gods

"A modest, lively, clever little book. Kritzman's puzzles range from party tidbits to the profound, and each is presented with a bit of history, a lot of insight, and just the right measure of wit. While he may not have intended it to be more than a collection of interesting conundrums, Kritzman has actually created a wonderful introduction to finance for the uninitiated with challenges for even the most sophisticated."
-Stephen A. Ross, Franco Modigliani Professor of Finance and Economics, Sloan School, MIT;
Co-Chairman, Roll and Ross Asset Management Corp.

"Mark Kritzman presents the reader with an entertaining way of learning some serious finance."
-Harry Markowitz, Nobel Prize Recipient, 1990, Economic Sciences
President, Harry Markowitz Company
