Life and work have been busier than expected over the past week so I’m still working my way through The Signal and the Noise. It’s been a fascinating read so far! I’ve finished the first two chapters which document the lack of good predictions in financial sectors prior to the collapse of the US economy in 2008 and [unrelated] the quality of predictions made by political pundits. The third chapter – which I started Tuesday night – discusses predictions in sports, or at least baseball.
In an ideal world, I’d love to finish this before the start of February but … that’s two days away. It’s a very detailed book and I can’t wait to finish it because I’m a nerd for information!
