A book by Nassim Nicholas Taleb< read all 1 reviews
It is rare when a sound scientific book renders itself entertaining, helpful and useful for the general public. Writing in a narrative style, Taleb tackles induction, survivorship bias and whether we, as humans, are equipped to face the modern world. The book is about luck and the fools who claim credit for what are often random events.
Stick with the book. It has applications in science, finance, politics and business. But beware; a thorough understanding of Taleb's thesis will shake your understanding of universe to its core.
