I purchased paperback of Incerto... figuring I had first book of Technical Incerto I should check out backstory.

I'm in the first book:


Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets




I need more time to read... this work stuff really slows down my reading and writing.

I really enjoyed all the original six done by Frank Herbert. I haven't read any of the ones done after his death, nor shall I.

The waiting list for Dune is miles long at my local library on account of the new movie adaption.
