I finished reading this book today. I have to say that it is a new and interesting area that he is writing about. Being a student of Statistics, I was able to find things of interest in the book and was wonderfully and pleasantly surprised at a few points. Overall, it was a good experience reading it and I suppose exactly the kind that I wanted to read at this point of time. Good time spent with it over the weekend.
I am finding that all the authors of good books have been voracious readers in their times. I mean that everyone does their homeworks. It is inspiring. I have not read “Black Swan” by the same author. I might try. Depends.
