Skin in the Game Fooled by Randomness Antifragile The Bed of Procrustes Incerto, Deluxe Box Set
A bold work from the author of The Black Swan that challenges many of our long-held beliefs about risk and reward, politics and religion, finance and personal responsibility. An investigation about luck–or more precisely, about how we perceive and deal with luck in life and business. Through deep investigation and insight, Antifragile reveals how to thrive in an uncertain world. With a rare combination of pointed wit and potent wisdom, Taleb plows through human illusions, contrasting the classical values of courage, elegance, and erudition against the modern diseases of nerdiness, philistinism, and phoniness. The Incerto Series is an investigation of opacity, luck, uncertainty, probability, human error, risk, and decision making when we don’t understand the world. Makes the perfect gift for the perpetually curious.

Product description

Review

Praise for Nassim Nicholas Taleb
 
“The most prophetic voice of all.”
—GQ
 
Praise for The Black Swan
 
“[A book] that altered modern thinking.”
The Times (London)
 
“A masterpiece.”
—Chris Anderson, editor in chief of Wired, author of The Long Tail
 
“Idiosyncratically brilliant.”
—Niall Ferguson, Los Angeles Times
 
The Black Swan changed my view of how the world works.”—Daniel Kahneman, Nobel laureate
 
“[Taleb writes] in a style that owes as much to Stephen Colbert as it does to Michel de Montaigne. . . . We eagerly romp with him through the follies of confirmation bias [and] narrative fallacy.”
—The Wall Street Journal
 
“Hugely enjoyable—compelling . . . easy to dip into.”
Financial Times
 
“Engaging . . .
The Black Swan has appealing cheek and admirable ambition.”—The New York Times Book Review

About the Author

Nassim Nicholas Taleb has devoted his life to problems of uncertainty, probability, and knowledge. He spent nearly two decades as a businessman and quantitative trader before becoming a full-time philosophical essayist and academic researcher in 2006. Although he spends most of his time in the intense seclusion of his study, or as a flâneur meditating in cafés, he is currently Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at New York University’s Polytechnic Institute. His main subject matter is “decision making under opacity”—that is, a map and a protocol on how we should live in a world we don’t understand.
 
Taleb’s books have been published in forty-one languages.
