The Fourth Quadrant by Nassim Nicholas Taleb · 09/16/2008 10:12 AM, Analysis

An excellent read, and a must-read if you use statistics. While very focused on risk assessment during this financial crisis, it’s lessons are very important for every analyst.

Highly recommended, as are Mr. Taleb’s books.

THE FOURTH QUADRANT: A MAP OF THE LIMITS OF STATISTICS [9.15.08] By Nassim Nicholas Taleb. An Edge Original Essay

BTW, there is a more technical appendix, but the link is way at the bottom. http://www.fooledbyrandomness.com/EDGE/index.html goes into the stats with more detail, and even if you aren’t a super stats god, you can see how things screw up with the infrequent events.
