Barnesandnoble.com claims that if they don't have the book, you can't find it anywhere or it doesn't exist, or something like that.

I've heard that ad as well. However, in my experience (several times recently) I have found books at Amazon.com which I could not find at Barnesandnoble.com. I like Amazon better (don't hold either stock).

I read Thorp's investing book years ago; it basically said that there were times when buying warrants was in your favor. This was before the large options markets of today. It's probably out of print; a large libarary would be your best bet to find it.

If I recall correctly, he's now a principal at a place that places such options bets. Last I heard, they were doing well.
