Secret History of Wall Street book by Aaron Brown  "Red-Blooded Risk: The Secret History of Wall Street" [2011]
by Aaron Brown, Illustrated by Erik Kim

Starting in the late 1960s, a loose group of mathematicians constructed a theory of risk analysis that used precisely-calculated quantitative guidance to predict 'the market'. They started with gambling in Las Vegas, Nevada and did so well that they were run out of the casinos. Then they tried sports betting, and again made a fortune. (By this time they were known as 'quants'.) Their computerized secret allowed tiny quantitative edges to create hedge fund billionaires, and created the powerful modern global derivatives economy.
