Nassim Nicholas Taleb spent more than two decades taking risks before becoming a full-time essayist and academic, focusing on practical, philosophical, and mathematical problems related to chance, luck, and probability. His attention is focused on how the different systems manage the disorder.

He now spends most of his time in the intense solitude of his studies, or as a flâneur meditating in a cafés. In addition to his life as a businessman, he spent many years as an academic researcher (12 years as Distinguished Professor at New York University School of Engineering, Dean’s Professor at U. Mass Amherst).

He is the author of the Incerto (uncertainty in Latin), accessible in any order (Skin in the Game, Antifragile, The Black Swan, The Bed of Procrustes and Fooled by Randomness) plus a technical version, The Technical Insert (Statistical Result) queue fat woman). Taleb has also published nearly 55 scholarly and scholarly articles as supporting, technical insert footnotes, on topics ranging from statistical physics and quantitative finance to genetics and international affairs. Incerto has more than 200 translations in more then 40 languages.

Taleb believes that prizes, honorary titles, prizes and formalities destroy knowledge by making it a game for the spectator.

Just as human bones grow stronger when subjected to stress and strain, and rumors or disturbances intensify when one tries to suppress them, so many things in life benefit from stress, disorder, instability, and confusion. . What Taleb identified and called “antifragile” is the category of things that are not only derived from chaos, but are necessary to survive and thrive.

In Black Swan, Taleb shows us that highly unlikely and unpredictable events are inherent in almost everything about our world. In Antifragile, Taleb turns uncertainty on its head, makes it desirable, even necessary, and proposes that things be built in an antifragile way. Antifragile is more than flexible or strong. Withstands flexible shocks and stays the same; antifragile keeps getting better.

Furthermore, Antifragile is immune to prediction errors and is protected against adverse events. Why is the city-state better than the nation-state, why is debt bad for you, and why is what we call “efficient” not efficient at all? Why do government responses and social policies protect the strong and harm the weak? Why should you write your resignation letter before you even start a job? How did you survive the sinking of the Titanic? The book expands on trial-and-error innovation, life choices, politics, urban planning, warfare, personal finance, economic systems, and medicine. And throughout, the voices and consonants of ancient wisdom from Roman, Greek, Semitic, and medieval sources, plus the street wisdom of Brooklyn’s Fat Tony, are loud and clear.

Antifragile is a model for living in a Black Swan world.

Scholarly, witty and iconoclastic, Taleb’s message is revolutionary: Antifragile, and only antifragile, he will make it.

It is a very complete book with so many ideas, anecdotes and arguments that it is difficult to name them here without getting into off-topic discussions. I was totally excited and appreciated that they made it for both the “technical” and “non-technical” reader. This allowed those of us who were looking for business or philosophical insights to shed the technical jargon and the “why” behind it.

The name “antifragile” refers to the opposite of brittleness. Instead of breaking when under stress, something that is brittle will actually use the stress to get stronger. This has far-reaching implications for many aspects of life, and the book goes through many applications with strong evidence and wonderful anecdotes.

The author introduces many new ways of thinking about aspects of the world, especially medical science and economics. He advocates general “rule of thumb” heuristics and shows several counterintuitive examples that should be obvious to us.

Taleb is certainly a rebel against the establishment, be it academics, medical sciences, economists, and he detests people who don’t have “skin in the game.” If people aren’t ready to test their predictions on their lives, why should we listen to them?
