Publisher's Summary

This is a book summary of Antifragile by Nassim Nicholas Taleb and not the original book.

Antifragile is a standalone book in Nassim Nicholas Taleb's landmark Incerto series, an investigation of opacity, luck, uncertainty, probability, human error, risk, and decision making in a world we don't understand. The other books in the series are Fooled by Randomness, The Black Swan, and The Bed of Procrustes.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the best-selling author of The Black Swan and one of the foremost thinkers of our time, reveals how to thrive in an uncertain world.

Just as human bones get stronger when subjected to stress and tension, and rumors or riots intensify when someone tries to repress them, many things in life benefit from stress, disorder, volatility, and turmoil. What Taleb has identified and calls "antifragile" is that category of things that not only gain from chaos but need it in order to survive and flourish.

    "Antifragility equals power"

    I love how succinctly Nassim Taleb's ideas were summarized in this audiobook. Insightful. Becoming as antifragile as possible, wherever possible, is my new goal in life.

    "Distracting oration"

    Flashbooks are good to remind you of the main sentiments of a book you have read but the stilted, juvenile approach of the reader bordered on condescension.
