A friend of mine ‘told’ me (by letting the book lie on his table when i came to visit him!) about this book, Fooled by Randomness. If i weren’t busy with reading another book, i wud definitely read this one right away. It’s short (220 p.) and deals with things i find very interesting. The author also has a website with some further useful information and free papers. And, it seems that he has written another interesting book, The Black Swan.
I found an ebook version on torrent. Altho for convenience, here it is (i edited it for easier reading): Fooled by Randomness – Role of Chance in Markets and Life PROPER
