    I just came across this entry totally by chance.

    Just so you know, in the film, the chapter-framing "lessons" are by the filmmaker, Errol Morris. McNamara's book had different lessons. For instance, he would never say "rationality will not save us". He is always in pursuit of a more accurate explanation.

    See this page on a Berkley event [berkeley.edu] for McNamara's lessons (scroll down). And check out the video, if you have the time. It's really interesting.
