New York: Blaisdell, 1962
First edition, first printing. A fine, unread copy, in a very good dust jacket with a bit of edge wear and some rubbing to the rear panel. A slight crease and tear to the envelope of strategy cards on the rear pastedown. Still, an exceptional example of this modern classic in probability theory. A former MIT professor, Thorp developed the first detailed strategy for gaining a mathematical edge in the game of blackjack. Beat the Dealer would become a bestseller, as well as a lasting disruption to the casino industry.
