This audiobook is about luck, or more precisely, how we perceive and deal with luck in life and business. It is already a landmark work, and its title has entered our vocabulary. In its second edition, Fooled by Randomness is now a cornerstone for anyone interested in random outcomes.

Narrator: takes many long, unwarranted, unexpected, senseless pauses. makes it hard to follow the book.

Book: If I wanted a superficial summary of "thinking, fast and slow", decorated with random stories of insignificant anonymous people, seasoned with quite a frequent and disturbing ego-stroking of the author ("i benefit when most people around are stupid, except for a few who would recognize my brilliance and hire me for it", something like that), I'd ... probably not like myself very much.

there are better books, in all aspects, to get the little valuable information that is in this book.

In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose start-up “unicorn” promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood testing significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fund-raising round that valued the company at more than $9 billion, putting Holmes’ worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn’t work.

I couldn't stop listening. so many emotions, so much hope that Justice would prevail. So much intrigue... Not even fiction could be this good.
A wonderful story, with very well built antagonist, and several protagonists, in a "Davids vs Goliath" style battle that ragged on for more than a decade.

And it's all real. It actually happened.

If you like any of Michael Lewis's books, you're simply gonna love this one.
