The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable

By Nassim Nicholas Taleb - Rating: 7/10

Admittedly, I didn’t finish this book. There’s a point about halfway through when he tells the casual reader that now would be a good time to bail; it gets pretty number-y from here on out. I tried to proceed but was lost. The book runs with a few ideas that Fooled by Randomness touched upon, mainly, the idea of the rare random event. I’m not sure I understood it all, but it was pretty interesting read filled with a decent mix of anecdotes, philosophy and statistics.
