Advance Praise for Risk Arbitrage: An Investor′s Guide, 2nd Edition

"Whenever I think of risk arbitrage, I am reminded of the old Wall Street proverb, ′Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to arbitrage and you feed him forever.′ With the skills learned from Moore′s book, you will never go hungry."
Paul D. Sonkin, co–author of Pitch the Perfect Investment: The Essential Guide to Winning on Wall Street

"Keith provides good insights for looking at risk arb from multiple prisms, and in particular, from a legal point of view. A must read for those seeking investment opportunities generating absolute returns."
Mario Gabelli, founder, Chairman, and CEO of GAMCO (Gabelli Asset Management Company) Investors, Inc.

"Keith Moore is that rarest of birds in Wall Street. A highly experienced practitioner of one of the investment community′s more arcane arts who also boasts the intellectual curiosity and firepower to delve deeply into the hows and whys of situations that have led to both spectacular investment successes and failures in the field. Not to mention the tenacity to pursue those explanations not only in the trenches of the Street but through the academic research that resulted in his PhD and has enriched the educations of countless business students. Now, in his trademark precise prose, Keith has updated his groundbreaking 2000 book on Risk Arbitrage, to the great good luck of a new generation of prospective practitioners."
Kate Welling, Editor and Publisher of Welling on Wall St., an online journal for professional investors, and author of Merger Masters (Columbia University Press, 2018)

"Seldom do financial books become page turners, but the presentation in Keith Moore′s book grabs the reader more like a novel than a textbook. A blend of great story telling, theoretical rigor, and practical experience, this book provides an outstanding approach to the risk arbitrage process, with explanations of not just what and why but also of how and when. The book is up to date and replete with the details of actual cases."
Dennis McLeavey, Ram Fund Advisor, Professor Emeritus of Finance at the University of Rhode Island, and former Vice President of Curriculum Development at CFA Institute
