About this book
Subtitled, "How To Stop Worrying & Love The Unpredictable". From the bestselling author of "Risk", this is an accessible book exploring the psychology of our obsession with the future.
In 2008, as the price of oil surged above $140 a barrel, experts said it would soon hit $200; a few months later it plunged to $30. Face it, experts are about as accurate as dart-throwing monkeys. And yet every day we ask them to predict the future. This book examines this phenomenon, showing why our brains yearn for certainty about the future.
