Suggested Read: Against the Gods by Peter Bernstein

Interesting read. Who knew there was such a rich history to critical decision making, probability forecasting and risk taking? The book is packed with economic and sociological theory, financial equations, statistical analysis, names, dates and places, but it is all fascinating and the book is extraordinarily well written — full of stories and metaphors and asides. Also, the data is presented in thoughtful, creative ways. The author is a brilliant thought leader in the field of risk, but he also is engaging, even witty.
