Last week, other bloggers and I provided favorite reads for Tadas Viskanta and his terrific site, Abnormal Returns. There are a lot of good and helpful suggestions offered there. But I am seldom asked about books in a broader context — books that changed my overall thinking and thus necessarily changed how I view investing and the markets. The ten books shown in the gallery below did just that. They were (and are) particularly illuminating. I highly recommend them.
- The Black Swan, by Nassim Taleb
- Thinking Fast and Slow, by Daniel Kahneman
- A Short History of Nearly Everything, by Bill Bryson
- Moneyball, by Michael Lewis
- Mastermind, by Maria Konnikova
- Ubiquity, by Mark Buchanan
- Expert Political Judgment, by Philip Tetlock
- On Being Certain, by Robert Burton
- Against the Gods, by Peter Bernstein
- The Signal and the Noise, by Nate Silver
