Antifragile

Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Overview

Most self-help books, when you break them down to their core message, speak to common sense. If you read a book like Start With Why, you'll at first be surprised, but once you get the core idea you'll say: "Of course. In retrospect, it makes perfect sense."

Antifragile isn't like that. It's unlike anything you've ever heard before. The idea alone is so hard to wrap your head around, that it really takes a while to sink in.

The author, Nassim Nicholas Taleb, is a statistician and investigates problems of randomness and uncertainty. He argues that some systems thrive when exposed to shocks and crises, instead of breaking under their pressure.
