By Antonius Gunadi on April 2, 2008
Format: Paperback
I first read the "Against all gods" 4 years ago in Indonesian language (translated version). I was so captured with the book as the way it tells you about risk management world is so interesting. Nothing like I ever read before. Mr Bernstein is a very good "story" teller and he is succesful in making the discussion of risk management an interesting subject.
Few years later when I was in Hong Kong, I found this box set and without thinking further I bought it. It was a good purchase as I also found out that the "Power of Gold" is also equally interesting as the "Against all gods". I learned a lot of new things with regards to the origin of trading and international trading leading to the establishment of banking institution.
If you are into risk management and general economic issues, I really recommend this box set as your reading material.

This is an invaluable resource for any young investor; properly read; you will avoid simple errors in investing. This is a set of baseline requirements for any investor. Wish it had been available 30 years ago.
