"Fortune's Formula is a fascinating study of the connections between such seemingly unrelated topics as gambling, information theory, stock investing, and applied mathematics."
_Seemingly unrelated_?!? Shawn Carkonen could have done with two fewer words in that sentence.
I'm not sure if I really want to know how _anyone_ could think that gambling, information theory, stock investing and applied mathematics could be unrelated to each other. They are the _exact same thing_, or at least, if you made a Venn diagram of the territory covered by the four, there would be _substantial_ space shared among all four. But if you have a theory that is entertaining and/or plausible, I'll consider it. I think I would prefer entertaining to plausible, if I had to choose.
