    By the author of the modern classic The Black Swan, this collection of aphorisms and meditations expresses his major ideas in ways you least expect. The Bed of Procrustes takes its title from Greek mythology: the story of a man who made his visitors fit his bed to perfection by either stretching them or cutting their limbs. It represents Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s view of modern civilization’s hubristic side effects.

    Story

    This is an excellent book although perhaps not suited to listening, it is short and hinges on one sentence aphorisms which would probably be better read one at a time and pondered. To hear them consecutively as in a list is intriguing, and simply gives on a desire to experience the printed book.
