Edward O. Thorp - Autobiography

Postby Joe Mckay » February 12th, 2017, 11:23 am

The autobiography of Edward O. Thorp came out recently.

I am enjoying it at the moment. It covers his life with a focus on the time he invented card counting. And goes on to discuss his work using hidden computers to cheat at roulette before using his mathematical genius to make billions on Wall Street.

I think a few others may be interested in this as well.
