Fooled by Randomness : The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
0812975219
August 23, 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
If the prescriptions for getting rich that are outlined in books such as The Millionaire Next Door and Rich Dad Poor Dad are successful enough to make the books bestsellers, then one must ask, Why aren't there more millionaires? In Fooled by Randomness, Nassim Nicholas Taleb, a professional trader and mathematics professor, examines what randomness means in business and in life and why human beings are so prone to mistake dumb luck for consummate skill. This eccentric and highly personal exploration of the nature of randomness meanders from the court of Croesus and trading rooms in New York and London to Russian roulette, Monte Carlo engines, and the philosophy of Karl Popper. Part of what makes this book so good is Taleb's ability to make seemingly arcane mathematical concepts (at least to this reviewer) entirely relevant...

Now, Discover Your Strengths: How to Develop Your Talents and Those of the People You Manage
Marcus Buckingham
0743201140
January 2001
Hardcover
·
 
Book Review's Best of 2001
Effectively managing personnel--as well as one's own behavior--is an extraordinarily complex task that, not surprisingly, has been the subject of countless books touting what each claims is the true path to success. That said, Marcus Buckingham and Donald O. Clifton's Now, Discover Your Strengths does indeed propose a unique approach: focusing on enhancing people's strengths rather than eliminating their weaknesses. Following up on the coauthors' popular previous book, First, Break All the Rules, it fully describes 34 positive personality themes the two have formulated (such as Achiever, Developer, Learner, and Maximizer) and explains how to build a "strengths-based organization" by capitalizing on the fact that such traits are already present among those within it.

Most original and potentially most revealing, however, is...

Master Math
Debra Anne Ross
1564143376
Jan 1998
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
This book, the fourth in the "Master Math" series, describes every major topic in the calculus, from functions through vector integral theorems, in a terse, no-nonsense manner, but the amateurish format is disappointing. Despite the availability of word-processing software that can do an excellent job on mathematical expressions, many of the formulae in this book are badly printed. Students accustomed to the new computerized graphics in most textbooks will find the diagrams and graphs rudimentary and unappealing. The text contains little in the way of motivation, few interesting examples, and no exercises. In the end, it feels more like the outline of a calculus text than an instructional book on the subject, and the student or practitioner who wants one would probably be better served (and save money) by picking...

The Sum of Our Discontent
David Boyle
1587991675
Mar 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
The flood of numbers in the modern world often obscures more than enlightens, hence the demystifying classic How to Lie with Statistics and its progeny. But according to Boyle the problem is irremediable and fundamental. "[P]oliticians can't measure poverty, so they measure the number of people on welfare. Or they can't measure intelligence, so they measure exam results, or IQ. Doctors measure blood cells rather than health, and people all over the world measure money rather than love." Boyle revels in such broad indictments, damning entire professions for popular or politicized misperceptions, whose complex origins he reduces to numbers themselves and the influence of a few seminal figures Jeremy Bentham, Robert Malthus and Frederick Taylor primarily whose personal quirks loom far larger than the historical...
