NEW YORK TIMES AND SUNDAY TIMES BUSINESS BESTSELLER
THE GRIPPING STORY OF HOW A WORLD-CLASS MATHEMATICIAN AND FORMER CODE BREAKER MASTERED THE MARKET
When Jim Simons hired physicists, mathematicians and computer scientists to form a hedge fund, experts scoffed. These people would become some of the richest in the world, amassing piles of data and building algorithms that would find the deeply hidden patterns in global markets.
Taking the name Renaissance, the company's executives soon began exerting influence outside of the financial world. While Simons became a major figure in scientific research, education, and liberal politics, his senior executive Robert Mercer has been credited with Trump's victorious presidential candidacy and helping steer the UK towards Brexit.
Drawing on unprecedented access to Simons and dozens of his employees, Zuckerman, a veteran Wall Street Journal investigative reporter, paints a portrait of a modern-day Midas who remade markets in his own image, but failed to anticipate how his success would impact his firm, his country and the world.
