  1. Tell us about your title, Applied Wisdom. What is it and how does it relate to making financial decisions?
  2. You’ve organized Applied Wisdom around many time-tested principles, axioms, laws and theories. Can you highlight a few that you touch on?
  3. From Thomas Aquinas to Frank Zappa, Applied Wisdom features more than 700 quotes from a diverse range of people. How did you come to collect them all?
  4. In the book, you explain what Marilyn Monroe and Mike Tyson have in common with Leonardo da Vinci and that both Muhammed Ali and George Soros applied Confucius’ wisdom. How does that help your readers make prudent decisions?
  5. You examine expert failure and warn against the dangers of forecasting – even arguing that flipping a coin is often a better option. You also detail the “Nowcasting Approach.” Can you explain what that is?
  6. In the book, you explain what Marilyn Monroe and Mike Tyson have in common with Leonardo da Vinci and that both Muhammed Ali and George Soros applied Confucius’ wisdom. How does that help your readers make prudent decisions?
