Publisher Description

Maverick thinker Nassim Nicholas Taleb had an illustrious career on Wall Street before turning his focus to his black swan theory. Not all swans are white, and not all events-no matter what the experts think-are predictable. Taleb shows that black swans, like 9/11, cannot be foreseen and have an immeasurable impact on the world. "[Taleb] administers a severe thrashing to MBA- and Nobel Prize-credentialed experts who make their living from economic forecasting."-Booklist

Perfect if you want to sleep

Bit of background of how I came to see this book and consequently purchased it. It all started with an interview I found really intriguing with Jeff Bezos, Jeff mentioned it was one of the books he was reading and I naturally thought if it was good for the richest man in the world surely will be good for me. Anyway 24% into the audio book I had to hit the stop button as the fears I was falling into a deep coma was becoming a reality.

The author really tries to be over intellectual and just blabs verbal diarrhoea. I suggest reading anything from Jordan B Peterson if you’re that way inclined.

PS I’ve recovered from my coma
