    Great book if you have the intellectual fortitude and self-honesty to withstand Taleb's unflinching (and downright scathing at times) look at how people see causality and order when the driving force is often just chance. It's a critical ride through history, epistemology, human behavior, probability, and the many lopsided bets that people unknowingly make. For some (perhaps many), Taleb's writing style can come off as intellectually pompous and disdainful. But if this bothers you, ignore the messenger and think long and hard about the message.
