Fortune's Formula: The Untold Story of the Scientific Betting System That Beat the Casinos and Wall Street

by

In 1961, MIT mathematics professor Ed Thorp made a small Vegas fortune by "counting cards"; his 1962 bestseller, "Beat the Dealer," made the phrase a household word. With Claude Shannon, the father of information theory, Thorp next conquered the roulette tables. In this prosaic but fascinating cultural history, the author of "How Would You Move Mt. Fuji?" tells not only what they did but how they did it.
