Book cover for Black Box Thinking: The Surprising Truth About Success
When the probability of error is high, the importance of learning from mistakes is more essential, not less.
“Cooking without a good digital thermometer is like driving without a speedometer, building furniture without a tape measure, or filling your tires without a pressure gauge. Invest in good thermometers. They’re inexpensive, fast, and accurate. They will pay for themselves. Nothing will improve your cooking more. You Need Three Thermometers Temperature is paramount in cooking, and you must measure it accurately in three different places: the cooker, the food, and your refrigerator.

When your children finally reach their mid-twenties and your car insurance premium drops, you can thank sleep for the savings.”
