Can You Learn Risk Management From Reading?
I would say you can’t thoroughly learn risk management from merely reading. But I do believe that you need to be able to have a safe environment to familiarize yourself with the concepts that will drive your future learning.
If you wanted to learn risk management, you need to be able to have a strong stable of information and easy to fetch knowledge so that you can have as many tools in your toolbox when it comes time for you to do the problem-solving.
Unlike some of the more advanced and curated list that we have, these books hear are predominately a pick and read as you go. I would say either ‘stop playing safe’ or ‘risk/reward’ would be the best starting point, but you can dance around any of the concepts. As long as you read them in quick succession, I think the points and dominant theories pop.

Stop Playing Safe
Stop playing safe is a pretty straightforward book. The central concept is that you cannot achieve long and fulfilling results while also playing it safe. The best thing that you can do is to take big, bold chances with the intent of failing because this allows you to see what sticks in an agile environment. By latching onto these thoughts and Concepts, you’re essentially never letting yourself to know just how far a concept can go.
Risk/Reward: Why Intelligent Leaps and Daring Choices Are the Best Career Moves You Can Make
Risk-reward covers roughly the same Concepts as stop playing safe. I have included it here because I do think that the narratives and the prose are exciting and different enough that it makes it as fulfilling regardless as to who you read first.
The undoing project might be the most intensive read on this list. The story spans several years about dual psychologists who are trying to deconstruct our decision-making process on a psychological level. This is really great if you need some additional information about the hard biological changes that happen when you were making individual decisions.
I’m somebody who finds comfort in knowing and identifying physiological changes in my body. Knowing that if I feel a certain way after eating something, I can identify the best solution I can do, followed by what was the initial problem that I ate, for example.
The same thing happens with me when I’m moving forward with an uncomfortable subject or proposal in a job or business situation. I know I tend to have a motor mouth, and I also tend to get shaky with my voice if I’m in an ample open space. I believe this book is a good job introducing these concepts to people who might not be comfortable with that level of self-reflection but might be able to identify it in a situation where it is critical for them.
Science of Fear
If the undoing project is how we come to make decisions in a split second and long-form movement, the science of fear breaks down any contemporary irregularity as to why we are so anxious about things. This breaks down the sociological, psychological, and neuroses a lot of us face in this modern era that we live in. I think it is a must-read, but this might be the only book that I would say should be metered in Reading. You don’t want to overdo it when you don’t want to start with it necessarily.
