    You read too much of non-fiction. Try fiction once in a while :-)

    Read your blog on Fooled by randomness. Very good analysis with excellent examples. Keep it up. I wonder why you have not tagged as RECOMMENDED in your list of books

      Although the content is good, Mr.Taleb’s writing is very hard to read and understand. Hence, it did not make my recommended list.
