The Very Interesting Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Pretty sweeping interview in the London Times. I think he gets it right a whole lot more than he gets it wrong. As it turns out, that's probably the very best anyone can hope for.

    Nassim is always very entertaining. He’s got a load of witty one liners for every situation and I’ve always enjoyed listening to what he has to say. I seek out his comments/interviews regularly. If he has one flaw it is that he mistakes his knowledge for wisdom. The wisdom of his message is not that complicated. I often liken his advice to that my grandmother used to give me as a child. Fortunately for Nassim he is far more entertaining than my grandmother.
