@MiningBookGuy@Alan - agreed. though for someone new to #NassimTaleb, I would recommend them to be read in tandem with #JimRickards. there's some interesting cross-over, with Rickards being VERY applied towards the near future. It's a lot to take in, but it's worth reading all of their books. And to go a little further, stuff by #BillBonner (I actually first heard about Bonner because of a reference by #NassimTaleb somewhere). And #FooledbyRandomness is still a very good one by #Taleb, I read that in 2006, thought it was the easiest to start with. #books
@zartcepsI have a question to all of you, do you know of any good books on math and how to improve one's mathematical thinking? I don't mean economectrics, but how to do algebra, mathematical equations, percent, geometry etc. #Books
@newstrackerOut of the Desert: My Journey from Nomadic Bedouin to the heart of Global Oil - New book about former Saudi Arabian Petroleum and Mineral Resources Minister Ali Al-Naimi. "“To say we didn’t understand modern finance and technology would be an understatement; most of those in this tribal culture had no knowledge that such things existed at all. I could just as easily have been born in the 1830s, the 1730s, or possibly even the 1630s and had a very similar barefooted boyhood to the one I experienced in the Saudi Arabia of my youth.”" http://www.arabnews.com/node/1028491/offbeat#energy#oil#saudiarabia#books
@MiningBookGuy@FundamentalAnalysis - glad you read #TheRoadToRuin! Interestingly, he used to recommend 10% gold for 'typical' investors, and up to 20% for 'aggressive'. I think he said that in #CurrencyWars, but I don't have my copy handy at the moment. He hasn't been saying that recently, and not sure what changed his tune there. I think he pushes #FineArt far too much, as I think that any type of fine art should be way down the list for people with less than $1M in investable assets (note - he does talk about 'fine art funds', but i still feel this way).
And I agree! Was much more pessimistic than I expected getting into the last few chapters. But he's set it up for his '4th book' to probably be the 'solutions' book (that's my guess...and btw, #TheNewCaseForGold doesn't count as part of the 'quartet') of #books.
For the record (again), I really like #JimRickards books. But I think it's useful to point out what I like/don't like when it comes to anyone I follow (with the 'God's Gold' thing going in the 'don't like category, lol :P ...and to be fair, it's possible he barely had any input in that writing as well, with professional copywriters getting paid big bucks for the sales pitch) #mbgtrends#newbies
@LucTenHaveI am reading the book "Gold Rush, Inspiring Stories of More Than 25 Companies in Search of the World's Most Precious Metal" by Michael Caldwell. If you are interested in Mongolia and $ERD, the chapter about Entree Gold may be interesting. It is mainly about the period 1999 - 2005. #books

@zartcepsI'm looking for a decent publication of "Extraordinary Popular Delusions and The Madness of Crowds"? I'm looking for an ISBN number. #books

@MiningBookGuy@zartceps - do you want the full, earlier edition? or the abridged one? I can get an ISBN for the earlier version, especially if you prefer buying older, used copies (or you can find it in a library)

@zartcepsDoes the the abridged version only feature the part on markets? @MiningBookGuy? I thought that I could ask you for the ISBN for the book(s) on your shelf. I'm browsing around after a few titles on the crowd and behaviour, and I don't want to pick up a dodgy version.

@MiningBookGuy@zartceps - i'm glad you asked! I forgot I included the ISBN's on my favorite 'bubble' books (another ceo.ca contributor asked me to do this a while ago). I highly recommend any of these books:
Specifically for ""Extraordinary Popular Delusions and The Madness of Crowds", the ISBN I have is: 0-517-541238 , a copy from 1980. I believe it's a 'complete' version. But it's hefty, and not easy to take with you.
Anyway, you can find ISBNs to all the other 'bubble' books in the notes below the youtube video. #books#bubblebooks (*EDIT - tagging to #mbgtrends in case others are interested)
