Big Brother is watching you.... 1984 is the year in which it happens. The world is divided into three superstates. In Oceania, the Party’s power is absolute. Every action, word, gesture and thought is monitored under the watchful eye of Big Brother and the Thought Police. In the Ministry of Truth, the Party’s department for propaganda, Winston Smith’s job is to edit the past. Over time, the impulse to escape the machine and live independently takes hold of him and he embarks on a secret and forbidden love affair.

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.

great overview but would have liked to hear more depth about trading and felt it ended slightly abruptly wanting more. that aside, I would still highly recommend the book.

Sam Harris has discovered that most people, from secular scientists to religious fundamentalists, agree on one point: science has nothing to say on the subject of human values. Indeed, science’s failure to address questions of meaning and morality has become the primary justification for religious faith.The underlying claim is that while science is the best authority on the workings of the physical universe, religion is the best authority on meaning, values, morality, and leading a good life.

The book seems very good for the first part I listen to and Harris reads it well however the audio processing, or rather lack thereof, does not correct for Sam's pretty brutal sibilance. This has the effect of his esses penetrating my ears painfully every few seconds and therefore I was unable to endure very much of it. If the volume isn't loud enough I only hear the occasional ssss ssss ssss and cannot understand what he is saying in my headphones, and if I turn the volume up so that he is intelligible, the esses are painfully loud. Because audible uses an annoying DRM format, I was unable to correct this issue, which would have been trivially easy had it been an MP3. Therefore I was unable to enjoyably listen to this audiobook and shall return it.
