Router Security Strategies: Securing IP Network Tr&hellip by Gregg Schudel
I bought this book to help me with a project I was doing from one of the major banks in Canada.

It is as theoretically sound as it is a practical implementation guide, with many examples and configuration scripts to help understanding the theories easy and fun.

This book - in my opinion - is not appropriate for a beginner. Nor… Read more
Active Index Investing: Maximizing Portfolio Perfo&hellip by Steven A. Schoenfeld
This is an interesting but awfully long book. I don't think it was meant to be read cover to cover since the book is a collection of writings from different people. I find it, however, a little dated from the perspective of practicality, and especially in the case of a retail investor/trader. I think today an individual trader has at his or her disposal an array of powerful tools to gain an edge over institutions in "Maximizing Portfolio Performance and Minimizing Risk", which could interestingly be done by electronic trading of "Global Index Strategies". Options trading on index products and their related ETF products could be good examples. In pursuing that goal, a more effective book… Read more
