Where: Biddle’s Escape (401 Biddle Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15221)
Note: we meet on Dec 20th, the 3rd Sunday, not 4th this month (December).
This book shows us the true nature of chance and reveals psychological illusions that cause us to misjudge the world around us. People err in two ways: assuming a situation is more random and unconstrained that it really is; more often we overestimate the amount of control we have over life. Mlodinow gives us fresh insight as to what is really meaningful, and how we can make decisions based on deeper truths.
