Skin in the Game

by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Skin in the Game

Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Overview

Having spent a great deal of his life examining how we can think more rationally, Nassim Nicholas Taleb is quick to argue for a cause, but not afraid to change his mind. Previous bestsellers from the former investment banker-turned-scholar-statistician include Fooled By Randomness, Antifragile, and The Black Swan.

Skin In The Game is a continuation of Nassim's Incerto series, and thus a remix of past themes: rationality, uncertainty, statistics, economics, information, risk, and morality. By showing us hidden asymmetries and who's got the most to lose in certain situations, Taleb helps us both make better decisions, and get the outcomes we want.
