Lewis on Michael Burry: "His mind had no temperate zone: He was either obsessed by a subject or not interested in it at all. There was an obvious downside to this quality -- he had more trouble than most faking interest in other people's concerns and hobbies, for instance -- but an upside too. Even as a small child he had a fantastic ability to focus and learn, with or without teachers."

This excellent book -- which I'm rereading for the sixth or seventh time, as inoculation against the likelihood of being more wrong than right in an investment operation not under discussion here -- describes my personality more accurately than anything else I know.
