How can the discussion of algorithms be made interesting to the masses? Of course, one way is to talk about how algorithms affect finances. And sports. And health. There seemed to be so much left unsaid and only hinted at. I wanted more than recursions into Wall Street and biographical snippets of the uses and creators of algorithms. I wanted more discussion on non-financial applications. For what it is, this book is interesting and believable. It whetted my appetite but never really satisfied. That may be because of my technical background, which won't be the case of all readers.
