One hundred thousand years ago, at least six human species inhabited the Earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; to trust money, books, and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables, and consumerism?

This audiobook is about luck, or more precisely, how we perceive and deal with luck in life and business. It is already a landmark work, and its title has entered our vocabulary. In its second edition, Fooled by Randomness is now a cornerstone for anyone interested in random outcomes.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Interesting and thought provoking concepts. However difficult to follow at time. Flight of ideas. Story line changes at times rather unexpectedly..

What could Nassim Nicholas Taleb have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Use fewer concepts and explain them.

Was Fooled by Randomness worth the listening time?

No. Can be shortened without authors anecdotes
