"A great book that takes a look at previous predictions pundits have made, and then sees how close their predictions were. Even the best experts had abysmal records. Given that, why do we still listen to experts? Dan Gardner looks at that too. In short, we want to. The predictions make us feel better about dealing with an uncertain and terrifying world."
"Entertaining, but not much substance there. Nate Silver says he will tell us why so many predictions fail, but some don't. But he never really does tell us. While a good read, the book has a lot of noise, but little signal."
