I am about to take off on a month-long vacation, so I thought I'd make a list of unusual, thought-provoking books to read on the trip. Top of my list is Fooled by Randomness by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Did I mention that I think Taleb is just insanely brilliant?
Second on my list is the latest one from Steve Wolfram. Did I mention that I think Wolfram is just insanely brilliant? (I see a pattern developing here...).
Hmmmm...I think I should round this up with something on economics and religion/philosophy.
What are some of your most favourite books that are *not* the usual literature/b-school stuff? For me, it is undoubtedly the books by George Gamow I read in my childhood.
