Highly interesting book by such an eccentric person, Nassim Nicholas Taleb. The main idea of the book is intriguing. However, Nassim is definitely not an articuate, succint writer. He probably could have explained his ideas in less than half of the book.
Also, as he drags the discussion, the quality of the text and relatedness of the examples degraded.
However, none of these issues worry me more than my main complaint that is you can’t take any serious implementable advice from this book. If you wanna have some fun with Nassim’s sarcastic style go ahead and read this book. Otherwise, you won’t miss much.
