Hope you are doing well. Today, I am recommending two of my favourite books - 1 fiction and 1 non fiction.
The Prodigal Daughter, by Jeffrey Archer
Jeffrey Archer is my favourite author. While he is the king of short stories, his Kane and Abel series (each of which can and should be read as a standalone book) are novels that will keep you occupied and draw you into Archer’s world. If you like long drawn character development, multiple character perspectives, and brilliant twists every few pages, Archer is your man.
Black Edge: Insider information and the quest to bring down the most wanted man on Wall Street, by Sheelah Kolhatkar
Tracking the ‘fall’ of SAC Capital, this book offers a brilliant peek into the life and trading style at SAC. If you liked Bobby Axelrod in Billions, you are bound to enjoy this book. If you have not watched Billions on Hotstar yet, I would strongly recommend the show. The show is the quest for power and battle of egos between Bobby Axelrod who runs a hedge fund and Chuck Rhoades, a lawyer. If for nothing else, the show gives you at least 1 new idea every episode to google, ranging from pop culture, game theory, psychology to everything under the sun.
Looking forward to writing to you tomorrow.
