2.0 out of 5 stars luck be a lady, 2 Mar 2009
This review is from: Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets (Paperback)
Taleb should do the races. He spends a good deal of his book explaining in a rather self-satisfied way that if you can keep your head when all around are losing theirs, then you don't understand the situation. He applies this to the rarified air of market trading, but all over the country people will tell you just why their dead cert never came in at Kempton Park and why it was likely that the 100/1 was going to win if only they'd looked more closely. It's interesting - but it's cracker barrel philosophy.
