Great book. This is not an instructional chess book as most other books on the subject. This book is a more about the history of the game and its evolution. A great read for those who enjoy the game and want to know a little bit more about it. The immortal game interludes will facinate any chess player. Hope this helps, enjoy.
This was my first foray into randomness and it was quite enjoyable. Dr. Taleb does a nice job delineating his theory and provides ample support for his claims. However, his argument seemed to wear on and on without really becoming any stronger as the book went on and I was not convinced by his line of thought. For those interested in randomness this seems to be a very good introduction and will tell you if you want to explore the subject further. - Rohit Soans
This is a long listen. However, this is a true classic and one of the best defenses of capitalism ever written. Although Rand's objectivism philosophy may not appeal to all, the ideals of free thinking and evils of unsolicited government interference/control are all well illustrated. The book as a whole is good, but some of the rants these characters make are absolutely brilliant. A book that truly makes you want to be productive.
The length is the only real drawback, the pearls are some times muddled in too much narrative and this can sometimes get old, but overall this was a great listen.-Rohit Soans
This is great audiobook. The book itself is a great review of scientific knowledge and provides a great introduction to the many branches of science. This book hooked me on a variety of topics that i found very interesting. The narration is also perfect and seems to really get the message across. A must read for those who want at least a cursory knowledge of how the natural world works. You will definitely be interested all the way through. -Soans
