FWIW My humble opinion based on intro/few pages/TOC available on the internet --
It looks very much like any other Aldridge's book: an eye-catching cutting-edge science/finance title, catch-all/poor content, and countless out of the blue debatable statements ("Since Python's syntax is very similar to those of other major languages, such as C++, Java, etc"), and in the end you're not sure what was the purpose of the book.
I'm feeling for Marco Avellaneda what I feel when my favourite music band releases a sh*tty new album. I wish it never released it.
And no, I'm not being grumpy this morning. Not much than usual.
