The authors simple but actually profound observation is that these two drives are often (if not always) at odds. in other w...more

No one had heard of Markopolos, who was rumpled where Madoff was smooth, excitable where Madoff was calm. Markopolos himself admits that he is a bit eccentric—for example, naming his twin sons Harry Louie and Louie Harry. More seriously, you have to be a bit nuts to embark on
Insight definition and the path to having them is fleshed-out very well here. I really like all the specific stories he uses to make his points. Most of which were from history(intersting tidbits I had never heard) an...more

I appreciate the structure that Klein has used to present his findings. He starts by explaining what triggers insight. Moves on to explain the limiting factors holding us back from gaining insight. Finally, Klein offers practical ideas of ways to improve our ability to gain insight.
