Red-Blooded Risk. The Secret History of Wall Street

An innovative guide that identifies what distinguishes the best financial risk takers from the rest From 1987 to 1992, a small group of Wall Street quants invented an entirely new way of managing risk to maximize success: risk management for risk-takers. This is the secret that lets tiny quantitative edges create hedge fund billionaires, and defines the powerful modern global derivatives economy. The same practical techniques are still used today by risk-takers in finance as well as many other fields. Red-Blooded Risk examines this approach and offers valuable advice for the calculated risk-takers who need precise quantitative guidance that will help separate them from the rest of the pack. While most commentators say that the last financial crisis proved it's time to follow risk-minimizing techniques, they're wrong. The only way to succeed at anything is to manage true risk, which includes the chance of loss. Red-Blooded Risk presents specific, actionable strategies that will allow you to be a practical risk-taker in even the most dynamic markets. Contains a secret history of Wall Street, the parts all the other books leave out Includes an intellectually rigorous narrative addressing what it takes to really make it in any risky activity, on or off Wall Street Addresses essential issues ranging from the way you think about chance to economics, politics, finance, and life Written by Aaron Brown, one of the most calculated and successful risk takers in the world of finance, who was an active participant in the creation of modern risk management and had a front-row seat to the last meltdown Written in an engaging but rigorous style, with no equations Contains illustrations and graphic narrative by renowned manga artist Eric Kim There are people who disapprove of every risk before the fact, but never stop anyone from doing anything dangerous because they want to take credit for any success. The recent financial crisis has swelled their ranks, but in learning how to break free of these people, you'll discover how taking on the right risk can open the door to the most profitable opportunities.

Aaron Brown (born November 10, 1948) is an American broadcast journalist most recognized for his coverage of the September 11, 2001 attacks, his first day on air at CNN. He was a longtime reporter for ABC, the founding host of ABC's World News Now, weekend anchor of World News Tonight and the host of CNN's flagship evening program "NewsNight with Aaron Brown." He is currently the anchor of the PBS documentary series Wide Angle, the host of public radio program The Aaron Brown Show and an instructor at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University.


Early Career

In the late 1960s Brown dropped out of the University of Minnesota as a political science major and signed up for active duty in the Coast Guard. Before his time at the national news networks, Brown became a Seattle broadcasting staple. He worked as a reporter and anchor for ten years at KING-TV and later moved to KIRO-TV where he anchored the evening newscast.


Brown was brought to New York to be the founding anchor of the late-night news program "World News Now". He also worked as a reporter for ABC's news operation. He left World News Now to work as a reporter for World News Tonight with Peter Jennings, as well as Nightline and various other ABC programming. He became the substitute anchor for Jennings and the permanent anchor of ABC's World News Tonight Saturday and Good Morning America Sunday.



Brown's first day at CNN was September 11, 2001. He received international recognition for his reporting of the attacks from CNN's rooftop in Manhattan, as well as the World Trade Center site and the areas surrounding the remains of the Twin Towers in New York City. When the South Tower collapsed he interrupted a field reporter and uttered the words "I cannot see the tower." As the second tower fell on live television, Brown fell silent, until he quietly said, "...good Lord...there are no words..." and resumed reporting after several seconds. Brown won the coveted Edward R. Murrow Award for his coverage of the attacks.
CNN saw Brown as a protégé of Peter Jennings and wanted to duplicate Jennings' success for their network. CNN branded their flagship evening program NewsNight With Aaron Brown. Brown also served as host of CNN Presents and was assigned the lead anchor during breaking news and special events.

Post 9/11

He covered numerous other news events for CNN, including the War on Terrorism, the 2002 House and Senate elections, the Beltway sniper attacks and the Space Shuttle "Columbia" disaster. During the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Brown anchored from the CNN Center in Atlanta, providing viewers with the latest information from frontline reports as well as from Washington, D.C. and United States Central Command in Doha, Qatar.

In 2003, he garnered negative press attention for continuing to play in the Bob Hope Classic golf tournament in Palm Desert, California, after the "Columbia" Space Shuttle disaster occurred. While other major news anchors such as Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings, and Dan Rather immediately left their vacations, Brown did not come into the studio and instead continued playing golf. The New York Times reported that Brown had actually been trying to get back to the studios, but CNN didn't go to special lengths to move Mr. Brown into position because Miles O'Brien, the channel's space expert, was anchoring the unfolding events.

During the United States 2004 presidential election, CNN used the NASDAQ Market Site for its election coverage, which some point to as the birth of the idea for Wolf Blitzer's "The Situation Room". Brown was tasked to periodically make commentaries on the trends of the evening's results, while Anderson Cooper was then tasked at monitoring key Senate and House races.

Brown won three Emmys, including one Emmy for his report "Streets of Iraq" during the Iraq War. In addition, Brown won a DuPont, two New York Film Society World medals and a George Foster Peabody Award.

On November 3, 2005, CNN announced that Brown would be leaving the network, with Anderson Cooper's program "Anderson Cooper 360°" replacing NewsNight as the flagship program in CNN's evening lineup in an effort to shift toward a younger demographic. The two had shared anchoring duties in the 10:00 PM time slot through the early fall after Cooper's break out success covering Hurricane Katrina. Many said Brown's cerebral "news for grown-ups" style would be missed, while others found him lacking.

Public broadcasting

[ [http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117968137.html?categoryid=14&cs=1 Aaron Brown speaks his mind] ] In 2008 he returned to television as the host of PBS' Wide Angle. Brown is the anchor of the series and also does reports from the field. [ [http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5g5JYAIjncUIzOpRcjrTKM94K7TnAD90AKRDO4 Ex-CNN anchor Aaron Brown returns to TV on PBS' `Wide Angle'] ] In May 2008 he began hosting a radio program, The Aaron Brown Show, based out of National Public Radio's Arizona affiliate KJZZ.

In academia

In 2006 Brown assumed the John J. Rhodes Chair in Public Policy and American Institutions at Barrett, the Honors College at Arizona State University. In Spring 2007 he co-taught a course called "Turning Points in Television News History." The class became popular with students at the university and the next year he became a permanent instructor at the Walter Cronkite School, teaching television news history. He is serving as the inaugural 'Walter Cronkite Professor' for the college.
