really liked it

I never understood how much Berkeley played in the quantitative movement. But it seems that money gained by a bunch of mathematicians figuring out how to get a 50.25 chance in their favor vs against to win the market seems like a lot of wasted energy moving money around instead of actually building things. In a way it is interesting in the sense that markets are unpredictable and it may seem fun to play but to what end.

However, it is interesting to see how the author describes the psychological change in people after they start making money. Overall a good read. Don’t really use it to understand anything about the algorithms or methods Renaissance uses.
