Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in Life & in the Markets
The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets
Everyone wants to succeed in life. But what causes some of us to be more successful than others? Is it really down to skill and strategy - or something altogether more unpredictable?
This book is the word-of-mouth sensation that will change the way you think about business and the world. It is all about luck: more precisely, how we perceive luck in our personal and professional experiences. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the markets - we hear an entrepreneur has 'vision' or a trader is 'talented', but all too often their performance is down to chance rather than skill. It is only because we fail to understand probability that we continue to believe events are non-random, finding reasons where none exist.
A Financial Times book of the year, this irreverent bestseller has shattered the illusions of people around the world by teaching them how to recognize randomness.
Now it can do the same for you.

Tankeväckande bok som dock skulle nå fram bättre om författaren inte valde ett så tillkrånglat språk. Han verkar tycka det är lika roligt att visa hur svåra ord han kan som att få oss att förstå slumpens roll i våra liv.
