The Black Swan : The Impact of the Highly Improbable

Nassem Taleb's book became an instant classic after the 2008 financial collapse. The book outlines the tendency of people, layman and statistician alike, to underestimate the probability of unlikely events. His book examines common bias and the influence of group think and modern media as well. It is an excellent read for most analysts.

Fooled by Randomness : The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets

This is Taleb's follow up to the Black Swan. Where Taleb's first blockbuster focused on our inability to assess probability, this book explores our equally problematic need to find structure and patterns in otherwise random events. As always, it is an easy and insightful read.
