    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.

    Any additional comments?

    This book has no story to it at ALL. It's rather a collection of different 1-2 sentence assertions (aphorisms). It was lots of fun to read, but lacks any sort of storyline.
