Notes
  • Banerji comments that Taleb's book "is really an engaging but idiosyncratic, opinionated essay on why people, including professional forecasters, are bad at prediction." Taleb "provides wide-ranging, anecdotal, logical and scientific evidence of misperceptions about the role of randomness in determining outcomes. He also states that "success in life-and even more so in the financial markets-is all too often the result of luck rather than skill." Copyright International Institute of Forecasters, 2006
