The Football Code outlines an innovative, ground-breaking philosophy that will change the way you watch the beautiful game. In a sport which is so largely dictated by randomness, how can we accurately assess the performance of teams, players and managers? How can we tell who is good and who is simply lucky? The Football Code teaches how a more scientific approach can eradicate the damaging effects of chance, leaving a clearer image of what is actually happening on the field of play. Only then can managers sign better players. Only then can pundits offer better judgements. Only then can fans compile better fantasy football teams. This book addresses the intrinsic errors and inefficiencies which plague the sport, whilst at the same time revealing the top secret methods that professional gambling syndicates use to predict future outcomes. Above all, it discloses the top secret, data-driven system that one football mastermind has used to make millions in the betting markets, and that has allowed the Championship team he owns to punch spectacularly above its financial weight. Football has finally found it's answer to baseball's 'Moneyball'. "Any fan who doesn't read this book will be left behind." - William Lund. "Unveils a revolutionary approach to the transfer market. Truly exceptional." - FootballNow. "A masterclass. The sport of football will never be the same again" - Levi Janssen.

Gamblers have been trying to figure out how to game the system since our ancestors first made wagers over dice fashioned from knucklebones: in revolutionary Paris, the 'martingale' strategy was rumoured to lead to foolproof success at roulette ; today, professional gamblers are using cutting-edge techniques to tilt the odds in their favour. Science is giving us the competitive edge over opponents, casinos and bookmakers. But is there such a thing as a perfect bet? The Perfect Bet looks beyond probability and statistics to examine how wagers have inspired a plethora of new disciplines - spanning chaos theory, machine learning and game theory - which are not just revolutionising gambling, but changing our fundamental notions about chance, randomness and luck. Explaining why poker is gaming's last bastion of human superiority over AI, how methods originally developed for the US nuclear programme are helping pundits predict sports results and why a new breed of algorithms are losing banks millions, The Perfect Bet has the inside track on any wager you'd care to place.

El ser humano está obligado a planifi car. A prever lo que podría ocurrir, para estar preparado. Pero el mundo cada vez va más rápido, y la información de que disponemos se acumula a un ritmo cada vez mayor. Cualquier intento de organizar los datos que nos llegan y de utilizarlos para dilucidar qué podría ocurrir a continuación puede llevar al colapso y al aturdimiento. En este libro, Nate Silver, especialista en predicciones —saltó a la fama durante la segunda campaña presidencial de Obama, en la que predijo casi al milímetro el número de votos que le darían la victoria— investiga cómo podemos distinguir, en medio del universo de datos que nos rodean, la información que es valiosa de la que no lo es. Visita para ello a expertos en todo tipo de áreas (personas cuyo trabajo consiste en prevenir huracanes y personas que tratan de prever quién ganará un partido determinado de béisbol; personas que juegan al póker y tratan de predecir los movimientos del contrario y personas que trabajan en el mercado de valores y tratan de adelantarse a las subidas y bajadas del mercado) y recopila sus métodos para aprender de ellos.

Quizá usted tenga un buen conocimiento de los mercados. Puede que incluso conozca a sus principales actores, sepa cuándo comprar, cuándo vender y qué acciones tienen un mejor potencial. Pero ¿hasta que punto se conoce usted a sí mismo? Hasta los traders más astutos, motivados y válidos pueden ver entorpecida su actividad por un tipo de pensamiento contraproducente que conduce a tomar malas decisiones y a cometer errores. En esos casos, sufren de incapacidad para permanecer concentrados con objetividad o carecen de la necesaria confianza para ejecutar sus operaciones correctamente. O tienen arraigadas profundas contradicciones y errores conceptuales sobre el trading o la naturaleza de las reglas del mercado en la elección de valores. Como resultado de ello, un porcentaje extremadamente alto de traders pierde todo o gran parte de su dinero durante el primer año de su actividad de trading. Mark Douglas, presidente de Trading Behavior Dynamics y prestigiosa figura de la enseñanza en el campo del trading en algunas de las más importantes sociedades de Wall Street, ha dedicado los últimos veinte años a ayudar a los traders a desarrollar confianza, disciplina y a adoptar una actitud ganadora que les pueda permitir dominar el mercado. Para Douglas, maximizar una actitud mental adecuada es clave para conseguir buenos resultados y resulta ser mucho más importante que los análisis de mercados o los diversos “sistemas” que se ponen de moda periódicamente. Enseña a los traders a pensar en términos de probabilidades y a tener las convicciones fundamentales necesarias para adquirir una “mentalidad ganadora”. Los traders “en la zona”, es decir, aquellos con este tipo de mentalidad, no precisan saber –y no les importa- que ocurrirá en los mercados acto seguido ya que ellos saben lo que van a hacer a continuación. Y eso es lo que hace la diferencia.

En esta obra, Levitt y Dubner demuestran, a través de ejemplos y una sarcástica perspicacia, que la economía representa el estudio de los incentivos. ¿Qué resulta más peligroso: una pistola o una piscina? ¿Qué tienen en común un maestro de escuela y un luchador de sumo? ¿Por qué continúan los traficantes de drogas viviendo con sus madres? ¿En qué se parecen el Ku Kux Klan a los agentes inmobiliarios? Quizás éstas no sean las típicas preguntas que se formula un experto en economía, pero Steven D. Levitt y Stephen J. Dubner no son unos economistas muy típicos. Se trata de especialistas que estudian la esencia y los enigmas de la vida cotidiana y cuyas conclusiones, con frecuencia, ponen patas arriba la sabiduría convencional. A través de ejemplos prácticos y de una sarcástica perspicacia, Levitt y Dubner demuestran que la economía, en el fondo, representa el estudio de los incentivos: el modo en que las personas obtienen lo que desean, o necesitan, especialmente cuando otras personas desean o necesitan lo mismo.

Professional football means many things to many people. For players, a means to possible fame and fortune. For fans, a source of local or national pride, and perhaps the chance to score with a few bets. For criminal organizations, a cover for making millions in corrupt enterprises. In the world of gambling this is no different. Football, Gambling, and Money Laundering describes in impressive detail the scope of the problem, the layers of denial that allow sports-related financial crime to flourish, and the steps that are being taken--and that need to be taken--to combat illicit operations in the sports world. Expert analysis explains criminal activity in the context of football, and how sports governing bodies, the media, and others have created a culture that regularly turns a blind eye. International data and instructive legal case examples shed light on the role of the Internet in the spread of gambling and money laundering as well as the strengths and weaknesses of current law enforcement, legislative, and sports-based efforts in fighting corruption. Included in the coverage: • Criminal activity in the sports world • Financial crime and exploitation in football and gambling • Legal wagering and illegal betting, including online • Illegal and disguised payment instruments used by organized crime • International legal cooperation in combating money laundering • National and international proposals for improving the sports and gambling industries to prevent money laundering An authoritative reference to a growing and wide-reaching concern, Football, Gambling,and Money Laundering will find an interested audience among academics, prosecutors, judges, law enforcement officials, and others involved in efforts to curb corruption and money laundering in the world of football.

Science and religious faith are two of the most important and influential forces in human life, yet there is widespread confusion about how, or indeed whether, they link together. This book describes this combination from the perspective of one who finds that they link together productively and creatively. The situation is not one of conflict or uneasy tension, or even a respectful dialogue. Rather, a lively and well-founded faith in God embraces and includes science, and scientific ways of thinking, in their proper role. Science is an activity right in the bloodstream of a reasonable faith. The book interprets theism broadly, and engages carefully with atheism, while coming from a Christian perspective. The aim is to show what science is, and what it is not, and at the same time give some pointers to what theism is or can be. Philosophy, evolution and the nature of science and human life are discussed in the first part of the book, questions of origins in the second. It is the very mind-set of scientific thinking that is widely supposed to be antagonistic to religious faith. But such suspicions are too sweeping. They misunderstand both faith and science. Faith can be creative and intellectually courageous; science is not the all-embracing story that it is sometimes made out to be. It is not that science fails to explain some things, but rather, it does not explain anything at all, on its own. It is part of a larger explanation. And even explanation has to take a humble place; it is not the purpose of life.
