Reading suggestions – December 2020

This post features my latest reading suggestions based on the academic papers and press articles that I enjoyed reading in December 2020. As I tend to favor open-source publications and active sharing, you may follow me on Twitter (@LeConcurrential) or LinkedIn (here) to access similar articles on a more regular basis.

Big Tech:



I also read (and enjoyed) these books:

  • Nassim Nicholas Taleb, The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable (Random House, 2007): a book by author and former options trader Nassim Nicholas Taleb. The book focuses on the extreme impact of rare and unpredictable outlier events—and the human tendency to find simplistic explanations for these events, retrospectively. Taleb calls this the Black Swan theory.
  • Michael Lewis, Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game (Norton, 2003): a book by Michael Lewis about the Oakland Athletics baseball team and its general manager Billy Beane. Its focus is the team’s analytical, evidence-based, sabermetric approach to assembling a competitive baseball team despite Oakland’s small budget.
