This trading book completely changed the way I thought about probabilities in trading and everyday life. A hugely insightful look at the impact and true likelihood of improbable events. These are the events that either make or break traders, so this book is an absolute must-read for anyone who wants to survive and profit in the financial markets over the long term.
