Tom Graves

Thanks very much for the reminder: I read that book in depth a decade or more ago, but had somewhat forgotten about it since then. (Doesn't help that most of my books are in storage 10,000 miles away from where I am at present... :-( )

Two of its themes have stayed with me all these years, though. One is that brilliant tag-line you quote above: "to be prepared against surprise is to be trained; to be prepared _for_ surprise is to be educated". The other is a simple assertion from right at the end of the book: that ultimately there is only one game, and that game is an infinite game.

Insightful... very. Thanks again!


My pleasure. A belated thanks for your comment, Tom! (Just saw it today)
