The best book I've read in 2018, I highly recommend it. Lots of great ideas in there. Lots of good mental models and constructs. He has a bit of an attitude, but he has that because he's brilliant, and it's okay. So just look past the attitude and read the book, learn the concepts. It's one of the best business books I've ever read. And luckily, it doesn't masquerade as a business book.      source
Skin in the Game by @nntaleb -- Skin in the game as conflict of interest, or as attaching one's livelihood to one's speech? Who to listen to, and why. Ideal counterpart to @PTetlock's Expert Political Judgment      source
A book about the dynamics of how large-scale, highly random systems behave.      source

@conorsen Lol. The Skin in the Game book is quite powerful, albeit often redundant.      source
Skin in the Game by @nntaleb is the non-fiction book I've read recently that has stuck with me the most. This is a thread of my highlights, with no additional commentary. If they're interesting, I recommend reading the book.      source
