I’m only about 10% into THE BIGGEST BLUFF by Maria Konnikova and I already love it. It’s a great guide into how to make better decisions in the face of uncertainty and how to acknowledge that both skill and luck influence outcomes (I find many people unable or unwilling to accept the luck part). I love how she uses poker as the tool to illustrate these concepts even though I’m not a big poker player.

Also by her: THE CONFIDENCE GAME, which is one of my favorite reference books on con artistry.
