Why you should read Risk Intelligence

Risk intelligence expert Dylan Evans takes readers out of the clear but false light of certainty and into the challenging shadows of uncertainty. He defines “risk intelligence,” discusses factors shaping your relationship to risk and knowledge, and walks you through the meaning of this information. The result is entertaining but it carries serious implications. If you work through the risk intelligence self-test Evans offers in the book and online to help you determine your “risk quotient,” you may be humbled. getAbstract recommends Evans’s instructive exploration to investors, strategists and anyone interested in being more self-aware or making better decisions.

    Just finished reading the summary. Excellent summary and very interesting book. Highly recommended. I will be re-reading the summary (and hopefully book too). There were parts of summary where one may be in total disagreement with the author. Looking forward to read other offerings from the author.
