Summary
Face it, experts are about as accurate as dart-throwing monkeys. And yet every day we ask them to predict the future - everything from the weather to the likelihood of a terrorist attack. 'Future Babble' is the first book to examine this phenomenon, showing why our brains yearn for certainty about the future
