Finished "The Signal and the Noise". Had some interesting anecdotes I guess but I still found it narratively underwhelming compared to Michael Lewis, and technically underwhelming period. It's in some uncanny valley where my technical expecations are raised really high if you're mentioning things like Bayes theorem, but it never got much deeper than mentioning and vaguely explaining Bayes theorem. I guess this very well could be a good book for people who have little to no exposure to math and are curious how predictions work. (6/10)
