Our inability to understand the exponential function

by Volker Weber

Very interesting lecture which comes in eight parts: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - Transscript

If this is of interest, you may want to take a look at The Black Swan (http://www.amazon.de/Black-Swan-Impact-Highly-Improbable/dp/0141034599/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books-intl-de&qid=1219042639&sr=1-1) by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. It was a great reading for me.

Hmm... I would have expected the eight parts to be 1, 2, 4, ... ;-)

@Arnd - thanks for the tip. Ordered Monday, got it yesterday, reading it today :) So far quite entertaining, let's see where it leads to...

Hello Arnd,
just finished the book. Fantastic read. I can only recommend it further. And in these times of financial turmoil very revelatory in a scary way.
