Hailed by the likes of Malcolm Gladwell, Fooled by Randomness by Nassim Nicholas Taleb is a groundbreaking work that exposes just how much the element of luck can play in the success of any business. But it’s not just business that Taleb addresses, he looks at luck as it relates to our personal lives, and every endeavor that we undertake.
What gives Fooled by Randomness an authentic air is Taleb’s twenty years of experience as a Wall Street analyst, before giving it up to become an outspoken critic of the entire system. With an inside look at how the system works, Taleb is qualified to speak out against risk analysis, and to address the massive role that luck plays both in our personal lives and our professional ones.
