The Book
In Fooled by Randomness, Nassim broaches the topic of uncertainty. He explores the concept that human life (and market performance) are determined by chance events, more than we credit them for it. And, humans make way more errors than they know.

He picks up different 'commonly known facts' and disects them to reveal the influence of probability, uncertainty, and human error.
Yellow - the book is extremely well written, but is 'literary' in its style and complexity. Laymen will not even be able to read it, leave alone the idea of understanding or using it.

But, I would suggest you to give it a shot, if you can - try the preview below. If you can make sense of it, go ahead and read the book. It is worth it!
