This book guides very through many things that benifit through chaos. i still havent figured out how to download the pdf with the charts yet. if anyone knows id greatly appreciate it.
This fantastic book is the culmination of black swan and fooled by randomness. A lot of people wrote reviews citing the author's arrogance. While I disagree, it is helpful to be reminded that he is actual fighting the arrogance and hubris of the financial system that scams us all. It also helps that he made many millions of dollars based on his prediction that others can't predict. A must read for anyone in finance, accounting or "strategy."
Another classic read by Mr. Taleb. Thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. I would recommend it to every one.
The author has a major chip on his shoulder. Though the material is fascinating, his anger turns the tone so sour that listening to the book became difficult and I had to only listen for thirty minutes at a time. Regarding the substance, brilliant and saddening. His rather accurate explanations are both relieving and saddening.
Having previously read Mr. Taleb's last two books, I was prepared to have some of my most firmly-held beliefs challenged and I was not disappointed. It requires several readings or listenings, simply because it requires so much attention. Highly recommended.
The book changed the way I view life. Entrepreneurs are the lifeblood of wealthy nations and academics take the credit. It feels as though we put a lot of money into higher education the should be used for entrepreneurs.
