Adam Robinson was born in New York City and grew up in Evanston, Illinois, just outside Chicago. He attended the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School before receiving a degree in jurisprudence from Oxford University. After graduate school, he became one of two co-founders of The Princeton Review. His first book, originally entitled Cracking the System: The SAT, remains the only test prep book ever to become a New York Times bestseller.
Robinson currently advises the heads of large hedge funds, family offices, and other financial institutions on all global asset classes–global equities, US sectors, bonds, currencies, and commodities–using a unique approach that combines game theory, systems thinking, Bayesian analysis, and behavioral economics to outthink global markets and anticipate when major trends will change.
Robinson is a rated chess master, having been awarded a Life Title by the United States Chess Federation. He lives in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.
