The Weekend Read – Antifragile by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Probably not the ideal book for the beach or poolside but well worth the time it will take to read and digest – I’m half way through reading it for the second time so that I can assimilate and enjoy the message.

In his first book Fooled by Randomness Taleb explored the randomness of success and how we need to understand luck and our perception of luck. He followed that with The Black Swan which showed that highly improbable and unpredictable events underlie almost everything about our world. In this book he says that uncertainty is the necessary and even desirable. The antifragile is beyond the robust or the resilient. The resilient resists shock and stays the same the antifragile gets better and better.

Do a google search for far more eloquent reviews than mine – I make no claim to be a book reviewer – then read the book.
