Fooled by Randomness
An easier read than the Black Swan
By the author of Black Swan but written before it. This book has made Nassim famous but also "hated" in some quarters for his show no mercy comments.I read Black Swan before this book, and like both. In a way, Fooled by Randomness is an easier read
asier read for most. While the thoughts are equally deep (for the underlining thougths of the two books are the same), the flow of writing is smoother and easier to follow.
The chapter on the Problem of Induction is very well written and I strongly recommend it to all who are interested in human knowledge and its true nature.
