Re: 2 plus 2 name origin

This may be a rare situation where a company's logo was created before its name.

As I understand it, Mason Malmuth wanted a visual on the cover of his self-published book Gambling Theory and Other Topics which conveyed a sense of what the book was about- a mathematical approach to gambling.

Mason liked the visual (seen below) and it became the logo and name of the newly created publishing company.

Not sure. I think the message is that if you buy a woman a couple of and take her to a couple of you get plenty of

Maybe that's in the other topics part?

Everything is relative. 2+2 is something between 3.98 and 4.01, thats all.

We didn't let it go to print with the "Absolutely must reading ..." statement on the front, we wanted that to appear.

Hi Morphismus:

The book develops a number of concepts and in this section you can see examples of these ideas applied in real life and history.

Best wishes,

Actually have that book, remember it was a good one, plan to look it over again. Wasn't the definition of a "great general" in there? It's like getting heads four times in a row.
