´A highly readable argument . . . Very impressive´ Nassim N. Taleb, author of The Black Swan
When faced with complex problems we have become accustomed to looking to our leaders for grand visions that blaze a path to success. But in this ground-breaking book, Tim Harford shows us that in fact, the more we fail, the more likely we are to succeed.
´Sometimes a writer comes up with such a compelling idea, you will him to succeed page after page . . . He shows that the key to success is constant experimentation . . . Adapt is an excellent book´ John Arlidge, Sunday Times
´Tim Harford´s terrific new book urges us to understand and profit from our muddling . . . Harford is a gifted writer whose prose courses swiftly and pleasurably. He has assembled a powerful combination of anecdotes and data to make a serious point: companies, governments and people must recognise the limits of their wisdom and embrace the muddling of mankind´ Edward Glaeser, FT
´If you think economics is boring, or beyond you, you haven´t read Tim Harford . . . He splashes his text with memorable nuggets´ David Phelan, Time Out
