I have sort of glimpsed through certain sections of the second book, since it was one of the recommended reading in my Intro to Engineering Probability and Random Processes course. Comparing, it with "Fortune's Formula" by William Poundstone, "Probability Guide to Gambling" is purely mathematical, whereas "Fortunes Formula" is more like an historical account of the gambling industry at beginning of the 19th century and it parallel's the lives of researchers at primer institution such as MIT and Bell Labs. I hope this insight helps.Do you know these ones?
I'm planning to read something from this field and a bit confused which to choose? All 3 are good.
How is the options, futures and other Derivatives book? is it really design for people with limited math background?
I need to add to my list:
Topology 2nd Edition by James Munkers
Finite-Dimensional Vector Spaces by Paul Halmos (a great read)
An Introduction to Mechanics by Daniel Kleppner and Rober Kolenkow
Unless, unbeknownst to me, Kleppner and Kolenkow has been reprinted, it's hard to get hold of a copy. Halmos is dated and Curtis is better.
