While reading wikipage of Fooled by Randomness, I came across metion of The Smartest Books of All Time by Fortune. I spend 15-20 minutes on Google to get that list but didn�t find it. Anybody know the link to this list? Any book that you feel is smart one?

Not sure what the smartest books are, but you might want to check out the story behind The Best Book Ever.

Thanks Christophe!

Fooled by Randomness doesn't exist in this list. I guess this is not the same list I am looking for.

No wonder you cannot find it with Google as you cannot even use a simple "Search" in a page either. Just kidding Look again in the list, it's there.
