We live in a world that we don’t fully understand. And with this incomplete knowledge, when we build complex things and hope that everything will work out the way we planned, it makes us more vulnerable to the impact of the improbable.
Someone once told me – Most books should have been blog posts and most articles should have been a 140-character tweet. Totally agree. I have read more than my fair share of such terrible books and bloated blogs. There are way too many mediocre and awful books out there. And when it comes to business books, most books aren’t even books – they are ego trips for the businessmen and a resume building gimmick for their ghost-writers.
But among every dozen business books that I have picked up, there have been few great ones two. They are truly worth their weight in gold. They changed my life. Even for Warren Buffett, the greatest investment wasn’t a stock or business but a book written by Benjamin Graham. As Buffett put it, “of all the investments I ever made…[it] was the best.”
