“A Man For All Markets“
One of the most brilliant mathematicians, as well as The Most Interesting Man in the World. According to his website, he is a math professor, inventor, best-selling author, hedge fund manager, and gambler.
Ed is most widely known for inventing card counting, but he also defeated roulette (along with father of information theory, Claude Shannon) and pioneered quantitative investment. Approaching his 90th birthday, Ed looks like he is in his mid-60’s. He is a national treasure and his life story would easily fill a 10 episode Netflix series.
