What made the experience of listening to A Man for All Markets the most enjoyable?
Personally I enjoyed the story because I relate to the author and his views on how to live a fulfilling life. From his youth he has been educating himself in science and math, improving himself, understanding how the world works. This man did not limit himself to one ambition or one career or one goal. He learned how science explains the physical world around us, how mathematical patters can predict all kinds of scenarios that seem random to most of us. I added Edward Thorp to my list of successful, rich geeks like Howard Hughes, Elon Musk, and Bill Gates. His story is an inspiration.
What did you like best about this story?
The author's intelligent approach to success.
Have you listened to any of Edward O. Thorp’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
After listening to this book I wanted to learn more about this genius that I never heard of before. I listed to some of his interviews.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
The fist half yes, I wanted to keep listening and enjoyed every bit of it. The second part dealing with finance takes more time to digest some times so it's better to pause otherwise a lot of good information just blends and mixes together and gets forgotten.
Any additional comments?
This book makes you want to be smart and successful. Even though the author is a born genius, he provides a lesson that education and ambition go hand in hand on the road to success. You have to improve yourself in order to get what you want in life.

Easy to listen. I like Thorp's pace, well articulated and somewhat slow. It's just great to hear straight from the man who lived such an exciting life journey. The book is what you would expect: casinos, markets, math, academia. Great content.
