Black Swans, Unknown Unknowns, Fire Hydrants and Other Pitfalls for the Unwary Negotiator
Thanks to my friend, the arbitrator and mediator extraordinaire Deborah Rothman for passing along a terrifically compelling book review about an amazingly astute account of the reasons why we fail and the ways we might avoid at least some of failure's pit-falls.
The site is the Motley Fool which I've understood for quite some time is one of the best sources for financial advice, which I have repeatedly completely ignored, and the book is Nassim Taleb's The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable. Really, this is a "must read" review.
Now if only there were enough hours in the day to read all of the good advice in the world, which is what this video is about (which I think I have either Gini Nelson or Stephanie Allen to thank. You know what? It was probably Tammy Lenski!)
The lesson of the video below? Information technology is increasing at so fast a pace that the best we can do to prepare our children for the future is to teach them to learn.
