As I surveyed the books I reviewed this year, I looked for ones with broad appeal that I personally enjoyed reading. Herewith my idiosyncratic list, with apologies to the authors of quite fine books, usually specialized, who aren’t recognized here. I compile these lists reluctantly (and not even annually), only because I have been asked to do so by readers of this blog. I don’t relish being a prize committee of one.
The books are listed in alphabetical order by author, and each one is linked to my review of it.
François Bourguignon, The Globalization of Inequality
Bill Browder, Red Notice
Robert Carver, Systematic Trading
Wesley R. Gray et al., DIY Financial Advisor
Greg Steinmetz, The Richest Man Who Ever Lived
Richard Teitelbaum, The Most Dangerous Trade
Philip E. Tetlock & Dan Gardner, Superforecasting
Richard H. Thaler, Misbehaving
