From the author of international bestseller The Black Swan, Nassim Nicholas Taleb's Fooled by Randomness is the bestselling account of the hidden role of chance in life and 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.

  1. Lång resa för insiktsfulla takeaways
    Anders Sjölander, 10 februari 2021

    Taleb säger att han gillar att läsa ogenomträngliga böcker, här får man sig en släng av detta och samtidigt en möjlighet att lära sig massor av ovanliga engelska ord. Han sparkar vilt omkring sig och ger tillbaka till alla som vart taskiga mot honom eller som under längre eller kortare perioder vart väldigt framgångsrika i finansbranschen. Några mycket tänkvärda takeaways men det kunde ha kommunicerats med en betydligt tunnare bok.

  2. Tillkrånglad engelska
    Daniel, 28 november 2019

    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.
