Frequently Asked Questions in Quantitative Finance III?

The same question was asked some time ago for Paul Wilmott on Quantitative Finance, 2nd Edition and answer was that there is no chance a 3rd Edition will be published in the foreseeable future, if I remember well. But ...).

I was looking at FAQQF2 on some online book store, with the plan of maybe buying a copy, and realized it was released in 2009 (yeah... everything moves very slowly here in France). Is there a chance the author publishes an updated version some day, maybe reflecting the changes in the finance industry, jobs, practices, etc... during the past decade, or something?

Thank you,
tag.

WILMOTT: "I have of late—but wherefore I know not—lost all my mirth, forgone all custom of exercises, and indeed it goes so heavily with my disposition that this goodly frame, the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory; this most excellent canopy, the air—look you, this brave o'erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire—why, it appears no other thing to me than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapors. What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty! In form and moving how express and admirable! In action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god! The beauty of the world. The paragon of animals. And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me. No, nor woman neither, though by your smiling you seem to say so."

WILMOTT Act II, Scene 2

My bus on the way to the play got stuck in heavy traffic which resulted in my missing the overture.

Well, it was 2009 (Nov 18) when Thierry Henri scored the winning goal for France, Don't you celebrate it?
