Book recommendation

"The Black Swan" - Nicholas Naseem Taleb

I strongly recommend that anyone with even a passing interest in economics, markets, probability and/or statistics should read this book.

I believe that most peoples' understanding of the natural world - from global financial and economic crises to Australian bushfires - will be enhanced by a reading of this book.

I checked it out on amazon.
And like you said, the book does look interesting.
I don't know if I will agree or disagree, but I will give it a read.
Amazon.com: The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable: Nassim Nicholas Taleb: Books

Will get a copy on my next visit to the public library.

I have it.

It is on the front seat of my car.

I started it. But, put it aside. I got too busy with other projects.

It is a good book. I plan to get back to it.

I liked the part where he described what we call history.
