The Fear IndexAudiobook CD - 2011
Dr. Max Hoffman is a legend. A physicist once employed on the Large Hadron Collider, he now uses a revolutionary and highly secret system of computer algorithms to trade on the world's financial markets. None of his rivals is sure how he does it, but somehow Hoffman's hedge fund, built around the standard measure of market volatility: the VIX or 'Fear Index', generates astonishing returns for his investors. But now someone is trying to destroy him.
