Reviews

This is a breakthrough book: Mother Reality makes sense in her own way. She yields her secrets to practitioners, almost never to academics - something psychologists, economists and non-skin in the game people, no matter what they say, are functionally unable to grasp. And the book is funny as hell: I smiled and laughed at every paragraph.
Furthermore, this is the first such treatise written by someone who had true contact with reality via something called a P/L.
And this is wonderfully applicable to about everything in life, from how to announce airplane delays to how to handle unsold opera tickets.
Buy two copies of this book in case one is stolen.

* Nassim Nicholas Taleb, scholar and former trader; author of the Incerto. *
Revelatory and entertaining * The Sunday Times *
Reading Alchemy was, as its title promised, the process of turning paper and print into gold. Veins of wisdom regarding human functioning emerge regularly and brilliantly from the pages. Don't miss this book. * Robert Cialdini, bestselling author of Influence, Yes!, The Small BIG and Pre-suasion *
Deeply original * Robert Trivers, evolutionary biologist and author of Deceit and Self-Deception *
Sutherland's book touches on many facets of life, but all come down to the importance of "psycho-logic", or non-rational factors, in how we make decisions and how problems can be solved * CAMPAIGN magazine *
