    No single, simple solution can solve the complex problems of tod

    No single, simple solution can solve the complex problems of today’s almost inconceivably complicated, interconnected world. Economist Tim Harford understands that evolution – gradual adaptive change – breeds far more success than revolution. In this thought-provoking book, Harford draws examples from multiple disciplines, illuminates the gap between how things work and how people think they work, and maintains reader interest with his entertaining style. getAbstract recommends Harford’s tactics for dealing with complexity to anyone who wants to think more clearly, assess policies or plan for the future.

    The book, in some way, complements "Learned optimism." Where Learned Optimism approached experimenting from the point of view of optimism n had gone further n advised the reader to choose optimism (experiment) if the cost of the action (the experiment) is small. While advocating pessimism if the cost of action is "too high". This of-course is a poor book review of both books. Overall I found the book easy n satisfying to read. --Avi Farah

    Overall liked it

    The writer effectively captured the importance of learning and adaptating based on success and failure. Drawing parellels between the evolution and extinctions of businesses was particularly interesting yet entertaining.
