Studying to become a quant involves lots of maths and lots of theoretical models. Sometimes I feel like I have zero intuition regarding the things I am studying and how/when/why they may be applied in practice
What are some good books to read to get that intuition? I have no particular topic in mind, anything which is relevant in modern finance could be interesting.
I'm not looking for books that just teach the basics but "without the math". To me, that's not intuition, that's just more readable. I am looking for books that assume I know the math, and explain to me how the "real world" works.
