Summary
  • Praise for The Book of Risk "Failure to read and to heed Borge on risk is an unacceptable risk."-Charles S. Sanford, Retired Chairman of the Board and CEO, Bankers Trust New York Corporation and Bankers Trust Company "The essential concepts of risk set forth in clear language and an engaging manner. Dan Borge demonstrates the use of tools for decision making in uncertainty with intuitive examples and broad application."-Clinton Lively, Managing Director, Corporate Risk Management, Merrill Lynch "Would you like a systematic way to make decisions whose risky outcomes can damage your well-being? Have you been out of school long enough so that you want the answers and not the theories? The Book of Risk brings the scientific tools of risk management to intelligent investors using Strunk and White's crisp and clear writing style."-Professor Alan C. Hess, School of Business, University of Washington "Dan Borge's The Book of Risk provides clear insights and tools to help readers make decisions that shift the odds in their favor. The biggest risk is not reading it."-Peter D. Moore, Founder and CEO, Human Capital Forum "Combining technical integrity with common sense, Dan Borge has taken the arcane topic of risk management and transformed it into a lively, mainstream way of thinking about how we make choices every day-in financial markets, in life sciences, in simply choosing to cross a busy road when we're in a hurry. Quite simply the best introduction to risk management yet written."-John Herron Jr., Former Senior Managing Director and Head of BT Ventures, Bankers Trust Company Consultant, and Managing Partner of Elm Tree, LLC "Dan Borge builds the concepts of risk management in a very readable and interesting manner. Readers who watch the house being built will be better equipped to manage risks in both their professional and personal
  • life."-DwightB. Crane, George F. Baker Jr. Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
