Hi Mark,

I am a newbie to Mathematical Finance. I just brought your book "The Concepts and Practice of Mathematical Finance". First, do I need to read Hull before I start reading your book? I don't want to waste money on buying lots of books explaining the same concepts. I want one solid book to start my journey into world of Mathematical Finance. I do have decent background in Probability theory and Calculus

Second, is your second book 'More Mathematical Finance' intertwined with your first book to get an deeper overview of Mathematical finance as a subject or can I skip your second book before I start my Master in Financial Engineering program
