NOW IN PAPERBACK

Set against the backdrop of the most conspicuous forum in which luck is mistaken for skill--the world of business--Fooled By Randomness is an irreverent, iconoclastic, eye-opening, and endlessly entertaining exploration of one of the least understood forces in all of our lives.

Fooled By Randomness…is to conventional Wall Street wisdom approximately what Martin Luther’s ninety-five theses were to the Catholic Church.” --The New Yorker

“Excellent and thought provoking... an entertaining book.” --Financial Times

“Recalls the best of scientist/essayists like Richard Dawkins...and Stephen Jay Gould.” --Michael Schrager, MIT, author of Serious Play
