This book was very interesting from the beginning till the end. Branwell and conner had such a great friendship. Branwell's silence made the person who did it confess everything from the very beginning of the story.

Fantastic symbolism. Intricate plot and action. Vivid lands and characters. Makes you think. From the opening pages you get the sense that there is something special about this science fiction novel. Far deeper on many levels. Stunning interplay of historical analogy and 24th century futuristic action.

DON'T BE FOOLED

TALEB offers us life saving insights about being gullible and too trusting in misleading ideas and charlatans. Guru's sell their latest opinion about food, climate and happiness based on flawed induction and survivorship bias. They miss the randomness of any trends and the fact that no one can replicate what is obtained through chance. Taleb is famous for the Black Swan Theory where an event is a surprise (to the observer) and has a major impact. After it is rationalized by hindsight. Examples of black swans include 9/11, financial collapse, power grid failure, the internet, rapid climate change.
The book is populated with an array of characters, some of whom have grasped the significance of chance: Yogi Berra, the baseball legend: Karl Popper, the philosopher of knowledge; Solon, the Ancient World's wisest man; the modern financier George Soros; and the Greek voyager Ulysses.

"Intelligent, honest, and revealing. There exists a distinct Taleb way of thinking and it is contagious." Marco Avellandea, Professor of Mathematical Finance, New York University.
