A Man for All Markets Beating the Odds from Las Vegas to Wall Street
Mathematics professor. Professional gambler. Tech inventor. Hedge fund heavyweight. Bestselling author. One of a kind.
Edward O Thorp worked his way up from nothing to become a professor at MIT. Using one of their early computers for his calculations, he invented card counting, making huge winnings at blackjack, roulette and baccarat in Las Vegas and brushing shoulders with mobsters along the way.
Thorp then went on to Wall Street, where he began a hugely successful career in the stock market, attracting the attention of global investors such as Warren Buffett.
He used statistical techniques to find and exploit pricing anomalies in the securities markets and built a significant fortune, earning him the nickname ‘The Godfather of Quants’.
For the first time, Thorp shares his incredible life story, explaining how he made his money and giving advice to the next generation of investors.
