  1. This author is just too full of himself Some years ago I started Black Swan but gave up midway because there was just too much self congratulation over his rather limited insight that the future is unpredictable.This book is of the same, only worse.From one paragraph to the next, odd Ripley s Believe It or Not factoids and impenetrable simplistic metaphors are thrown at you, with little pretense at logical sequence Taleb tries to explain away the lack of continuity by saying that he s really wri [...]


  2. The idea of the book is very interesting and is filled with examples and anecdotes which help clarify the concept and its implications It is very interesting how such an important concept with clear implications in multiple contexts has flown under the radar by academics and professionals I have read other books by the same author, had high expectations and I wasn t disappointed However, I cannot stop thinking that it could have been written in half the pages.His mix of informal prose, reference [...]


  3. Some people rave about this author and his ability to challenge conventional thought Others complain about his drawn out and stream of consciousness writing style I m in the group that found his writing style so distasteful to read that his content was lost on me I enjoyed the ideas he shared and his point of view Yet his verbose and negative writing style made it impossible for me to want to read beyond the first 1 3 of the book My time was valuable.


  4. Oh, Taleb You make it so hard to not use vulgar language in my review.This book, which introduces and describes the concept of antifragility, is pretty revolutionary Few books have fundamentally changed the way I think about the world, and this is one of them My understanding of risk and how to address it has shifted dramatically, and the application of the concepts discussed has yielded surprising results.That being said, the author is as pretentious as they come Expect a lot of fancy pants lan [...]


  5. This is the type of book which truly requires some introspection and reflection on your part You cannot take this at face value and read it truly as a work of nonfiction While you are reading, you must imagine how antifragility and all its domains work in your particular life and lifestyle As Taleb relates at the end of his book, look around you what is fragile and antifragile What likes volatility what dislikes uncertainty And do you yourself like variation and disorder That means you are truly [...]


  6. I have 50 ish book purchases This is my first review.This book has lots of smart guy words Lots of short stories and anecdotes and mythological references Lots of bland generalities.Yes, models can be way wrong if the inputs are wrong Yes, there are tail events that can help or hurt Yes, not all relationships are linear It shouldn t take hundreds of pages to say stuff like this Dressing all this up in smart guy speak doesn t help the reader.I almost never get surly about book purchases but I m s [...]


  7. I loved Fooled by Randomness and the Black Swan, but this follow up is disappointing There s two reasons for this the first is that Taleb seems to have explained his key thoughts in those earlier books, and there s little new material here The second is that Taleb suffers from what I would call Harry Potter Syndrome , in that as he s become popular editors seem reluctant to take a scalpel to his work actually he repeatedly voices his disdain for editors The result of this is 500 pages of ramblin [...]


  8. I really, really wanted to like this book.I tried to read it and stick with it I genuinely did But Taleb literally was repeating the same thing over and over again to the point I thought that there had been an error in printing The author s disdain towards other academics and scholars using terms like the Soviet Harvard illusion was quite off putting and his use of big words for big words sake really started to chafe.Honestly, I think that the ideas presented in the book are fantastic and worthy [...]
