Top customer reviews
Supposedly written for finance professionals, it never moves beyond random numbers, moving averages, SMA and Bolinger bands. No credit or risk modelling, Monte Carlo Simulation or portfolio aggregation; all of which clojure is great at.
It assumes little or no knowledge of clojure on the readers part. A finance professional with no clojure experience would be much better served with a general language book like The The Joy of Clojure and with some clojure experience Henry Garner's Clojure for Data Science.
We need a book with this title but this is not the right book.
Examples in the book had numerous errors, functions with unused args and not single reference to transducers which is one of the killer features that makes clojure great for finance.
