Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets - Incerto 2 Updated edition

Fooled by Randomness is a standalone book in Nassim Nicholas Taleb?s landmark Incerto series, an investigation of opacity, luck, uncertainty, probability, human error, risk, and decision-making in a world we don?t understand. The other books in the series are The Black Swan, Antifragile, and The Bed of Procrustes.

?[Taleb is] Wall Street?s principal dissident. . . . [Fooled By Randomness] is to conventional Wall Street wisdom approximately what Martin Luther?s ninety-nine theses were to the Catholic Church.?
?Malcolm Gladwell, The New Yorker

Finally in paperback, the word-of-mouth sensation that will change the way you think about the markets and the world. This book is about luck: more precisely how we perceive luck in our personal and professional experiences.

Set against the backdrop of the most conspicuous forum in which luck is mistaken for skill?the world of business?Fooled by Randomnessis an irreverent, iconoclastic, eye-opening, and endlessly entertaining exploration of one of the least understood forces in all of our lives.
