The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable, 2nd Edition (repost)

Nassim Nicholas Taleb, "The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable, 2nd Edition"
2010 | ISBN-10: 081297381X | 480 pages | EPUB | 6 MB

A black swan is an event, positive or negative, that is deemed improbable yet causes massive consequences. In this groundbreaking and prophetic book, Taleb shows in a playful way that Black Swan events explain almost everything about our world, and yet we—especially the experts—are blind to them. In this second edition, Taleb has added a new essay, On Robustness and Fragility, which offers tools to navigate and exploit a Black Swan world.
