I've heard a few interviews with Taleb and he can be very interesting so I tried to give one of his books a try knowing that much of it would probably be over my head. It really wasn't as dense as I expected. In fact, he uses many easily understandable anecdotes and examples to demonstrate his observations on why we tend to incorrectly confuse random outcomes with successful insights/predictions. Maybe a little too much focus on finance than I really need to hear, but overall an provocative read.
