Review

"[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

"Fascinating . . . Taleb will grab you."
-Peter L. Bernstein, author of Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk

"Recalls the best of scientist/essayists like Richard Dawkins . . . and Stephen Jay Gould."
-Michael Schrage, author of Serious Play

"We need a book like this . . . fun to read, refreshingly independent-minded."
-Robert J. Shiller, author of Irrational Exuberance
