Description:
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.

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.

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.

His books "The Black Swan" and "Fooled by Randomness" have been published in thirty-one languages and "Fooled by Randomness" was selected by "
