Against the Gods

by WayneB on Oct 30, 2008

This book was recommended by a friend and I can't thank him enough for sharing this find. This book was an amazing insight into how people thought about risk going back several hundred years. To me, those times were tough to live in, so to spend time delving into abstract numbers and sequences and trying to figure out a formula for predicting events, was to say the least, unbelievable. Peter Bernstein has a tremendous grasp of the subject he writes about. I'm sure you'll finish this book with a new picture of what has gone on for all these years.
