Nassim Taleb book review

Nassim Taleb reviews the book Information: The New Language of Science on Amazon:

“If you want an introduction to information theory, and, in a way, probability theory from the real front door, this is it. A clearly written book, very [intuitive], explains things, such as the Monty Hall problem in a few lines. I will make it a [prerequisite] before more technical great books, such as Cover and Thompson.”
