A terrible ending to a great collection. Frank Herbert's books are about ideas and concepts. Brian and Kevin seem to lack any original thought, and do not have an ounce of thought provoking or controversial material. Their books are about action and adventure. Frank's books are about the integration of religion, government and warfare, and their implications on society. Brian and Kevin's books are about Duncan Idaho saving humanity and big worms crushing robots. Bland.
This book is about philosophy, deep thinking and self-reflection. It does not have trading tips or predictions about the economy. It is about a paradigm that isn't considered in every day life; consideration of black swan events. There are many analogies to finance and criticisms of economics and policy. Yes, it is very negative. Yes, he comes across as pompous and arrogant. And yes, after awhile you get his point. But I must admit that this book opened my mind to new concepts and points of view. I see events in the market place and in my current field much differently now. If you like to think about abstract, philosophical ideas, then this is a good book. If you do not enjoy the act of thinking, then do not read this book.
