Written by an experienced risk manager, this innovative new book explores the core concepts of risk management, including in-depth coverage of its scope, rationale, and practical applications. In addition to being fundamentally important to risk managers, this text will also be invaluable to senior executives, directors, regulators, and capital markets professionals. Students, lay readers, and others interested in finance will find a vast subject made engaging and accessible. Written with unusual clarity, The Shape of Risk makes use of graphics, case studies, and questions. The author encourages readers to develop their own intuition and judgment for identifying and managing risk. This is an excellent starting point for a new generation of readers who increasingly need a both practical and conceptual understanding of risk management.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Mr Fishkin's new book, exploring the core concepts of risk management, is a useful work for senior management.' - Accountancy Ireland

'...we bankers are truly fortunate that Charles Fishkin has had the good judgement to provide us with another fine addition to our risk management libraries. His Shape of Risk merits a place on our shelves not only because of its well-organised structure, but also because of the attention he focuses on the organizational aspects of risk management... If Cicero's contention that fortune, not wisdom, rules man's life, then it's worth the risk to buy and read this book and gain a little wisdom on the way to good fortune.' - Dev Strischek, Risk Management Association Journal
