* "Managing risk involves moral ambiguities
* Watch out for unintended consequences
* Prepare for contingencies, but expect surprises
* Life is exploration and adventure - don't avoid risk"
Entertaining, clearly written, occasionally repetitive, easy to digest in chunks over a plane ride or two, its well worth the read. You'll find yourself highlighting pages, and writing notes in the margins for use later -- all the signs of a good book.
