The first half of the book covers the early history of probability and statistics, which was fascinating as it overlapped a lot with "A short history of nearly everything."
Too often the author
tries to make a concept more concrete by using stock market examples, but short term movements of stock themselves aren't concretely understood.
Towards the end, the author just touches on the concepts of behavioral economics and derivatives, which made me really want to learn more. Fortunately, I know what books to read next.
