Booklist Reviews 2019 April #1

In what is probably the most entertaining book about risk management ever written, economist Schrager expands upon her specialty in retirement planning to examine how risk is handled in unusual professions and what this can teach us about managing risk. True to the title, she opens the book by interviewing the owner and a few employees of a legal brothel in Nevada. The other occupations she explores are equally colorful: she visits those who invest in potential Hollywood blockbusters, watches the paparazzi watch celebrities, stays cool and logical with competitive poker players, explores the risks of a life of crime in New York City, looks at the benefits of diversification with thoroughbred-horse breeders in Kentucky, talks about hedging your bets with the CEO of Carnival Cruise Lines, thinks about the benefits of insurance with big-wave surfers in Hawaii, and speaks with General H. R. McMaster about planning for uncertainty in war. She makes complicated principles accessible so the lay reader can easily put them to use for retirement planning or everyday decision making.
