Adapt - why success always begins with failure: Tim Harford

Why are you reading this book review?

Adapt came out in 2011 and it's a masterful summary of evolutionary development in economics, society, business and personal endeavour. It looks at the problems of finding solutions in complex spaces, safety measures in complex interconnected systems (like nuclear power stations, domino toppling, oil rigs and banking systems). Harford is erudite, amusing, insightful, anecdotal, informed and at times gripping. It's a great book.

Presumably you're reading this book review because you haven't read it.
