Peter Bernstein
The Remarkable Story of Risk

When we think of risk it typically conjures up negative connotations.

Why is that?

“This book helped me to realize that proactive risk management can be a positive experience, versus the negative one most people hold onto when thinking of risks,” says Brad Malone.

“Humankind has typically grown through adversity, and it’s the ability to see the opportunity within the risk event that’s exciting to me.”

Peter Bernstein argues that the notion of bringing risk under control is one of the central ideas that distinguishes modern times from the distant past. Against the Gods chronicles the remarkable intellectual adventure that liberated humanity from oracles and soothsayers by means of the powerful tools of risk management that are available to us today.
