Nate Silver and Nassim Taleb

I have read books by both Silver and Taleb in the last couple years. Both authors have significantly changed my thinking about the world.

The Signal and the Silence looks at Silver and Taleb. It is a good review. My only real question is about the opening section, where the fate of the 2011 Boston Red Sox is described as “the worst collapse in Major League Baseball history.” I still have not recovered from the 1969 Chicago Cubs.
