Nassim N. Taleb’s Antifragile: Things That Gain From Disorder


As I’ve said previously elsewhere, it’s amazing. I felt like my brain was being opened surgically and insight being poured in. The idea of convexity, optionality, logic’s inability to express reality, sucker vs nonsucker, etc… very good.

But it was also infuriating, as NNT has a particular way of writing and his asides are often snide and unnecessary. And he looooves to toot his own horn.
