Bought a book titled "The Black Swan" By Nassim Nicholas Taleb

I have just bought a book titled "The Black Swan" by Nassim Nicholas Taleb at Borders Parkway. The cost of the book is $32.90, but I only paid $22.90 as I have a $10 voucher card.

Taken from description at the back cover of the book, this book is all about Blacks Swans: the random events that underlie our lives, from bestsellers to world disasters. Their impact is huge; they're nearly impossible to predict; yet after they happen we always try to rationalize them. A rallying cry to ignore the 'experts', The Black Swan shows us how to stop trying to predict everything and take advantage of uncertainty.

I hope to finish the book in this month and if possible, I will write in this blog on what I have learnt from the book and see is there any linkage to my aim to achieve financial freedom.
