    Story
    "A shoe computer to beat roulette!"

    Whether you love roulette, caculating odds or computers then this book is for you! The author has the right amount of geekiness in terms of the technical talk that doesn't distract from the story. The book took me back to the 70's and 80's where my thoughts drifted to challenges faced implementing the shoe computer at a time Apple were building their first computers. A story that would suit any decade from the 70's through until modern day.

    Stephen Tupper did the story credit with an excellent, passionate narration.

    "A fascinating true tale to geek out on"
    What did you love best about The Eudaemonic Pie?

    If you're a fan of electronics, early microcomputers, or roulette, this is your book. This true story follows the escapades of a group of geniuses from Santa Cruz putting their myriad talents to use predicting roulette with concealed microprocessors. The story is riveting and strikes the perfect balance between entertaining narrative and technical detail.

    Steve Tupper's narration of the book is top notch. His obvious passion for the subject matter shines through in the performance and will have any listener hooked from the start.
