Is the pope atheist? Why can a stubborn minority easily end up ruling? Should you take advice from a salesperson? This book is all about why having skin in the game matters. For a society to function properly, those who benefit should also risk something and those who risk something should benefit. Full of philosophical tales and practical stories, Skin in the Game offers a key rule to live by- do not do to others what you don't want them to do to you, with its practical extension- never take advice from someone who gives advice for a living.


The hottest thinker in the world * The Times * The most prophetic voice of all * GQ * Imagine someone with the erudition of Pico de la Mirandola, the skepticism of Montaigne, solid mathematical training, a restless globetrotter, polyglot, enjoyer of fine wines, specialist of financial derivatives, irrepressible reader, and irascible to the point of readily slapping a disciple * La Tribune, Paris *
