The phenomenal international bestseller that shows us how to stop trying to predict everything - and take advantage of uncertainty. Why are all forecasters con-artists? Why should you never run for a train or read a newspaper? This book is all about Black Swans: Their impact is huge; they're impossible to predict; yet after they happen we always try to rationalize them. I came to relish what he said, and even develop a sneaking affection for him as a person' Will Self, Independent on Sunday. Dubner, Co-Author of Freakonomics. Great fun … brash, stubborn, entertaining, opinionated, curious, cajoling. Nassim Nicholas Taleb spent twenty-one years as a risk taker before becoming a researcher in philosophical, mathematical, and mostly practical problems with probability. His books, Antifragile, The Black Swan, The Bed of Procrustes and Fooled by Randomness part of a multi-volume collection called Incerto, Latin for uncertainty , have been translated into thirty-seven languages. Taleb has authored more than fifty scholarly papers as backup to Incerto, ranging from international affairs and risk management to statistical physics. He refuses all awards and honours as they debase knowledge by turning it into competitive sports. For the latest books, recommendations, offers and more.

Somehow I was expecting something more interesting, something more accessible, something less dense, something with more substance. Financial stuff awash with theory and mental lines and graphs, on the other hand, makes my eyes glaze over as though in insulin-shock brought on by an overdose of jelly-filled doughnuts.

Swan is a little reminiscent of a dog that goes to lie down but must first go around and around.

Except I wonder if Taleb will ever stop going around. In desperation, I invoked the fifty page rule and decided it would be best to go on to some more pre-masticated form of entertainment. As for me: I'm going to wash up for supper. Like r rswcove Mar 28, The hatred this book inspires bewilders me. Taleb mercilessly and frequently viciously attacks economists, so I understand why economists hate Taleb and his book. I don't understand why so many other people seem to hate his book.

It is dense and it tells its thesis indirectly much of the time, but it is a brilliant book. I suspect its attack upon established paradigms is the cause of the bile spewed at the book. All I can say is to read it for yourself.
