Book review – Engage the enemy more closely
What's the difference between knowledge and wisdom? The answer is that these two elements need to fuse in a chemical reaction to produce an effective investment strategy – covet wisdom, and you have time on your side; covet knowledge, and you have facts on your side. It is, of course, the luck of the draw as to which one is the winner on Wednesday.
Book review – The Profit Paradox
Jan Eeckhout is a research professor; fortunately, he doesn't write like one. Despite the serious subject matter of The Profit Paradox his style is engaging and conversational, and the book is light on its feet and commendably free of jargon.
Book review – Invisible Women
Why are women in the United Kingdom 50% more likely to be misdiagnosed after a heart attack? Or 47% more likely to be seriously injured in road traffic accidents?
Book review – The Bed of Procrustes
Aphorisms, done well, convey the wisdom of the proverb, with the power of poetry. Similar in form to a tweet, the two should not, must not, be confused or conflated.
Book review – Into Thin Air
Thinking beyond the summit. There are plenty of excellent books about investing. But sometimes the best advice can be found in unlikely places.
Book review – Dignity
Seeking respect in back row America.
Book review – The Forger’s Spell
A talent for deception.
Book review – Disrupted
Candy walls and the cult of a company.
