The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable

tags: statistics

This book could literally have been written in 25 pages. I find Taleb incredibly narcissistic. He doesn’t say anything in 1 word that could be said in 10, and his main goal seems to be on injecting himself into the text so we all know how smart he is. There’s a decent point here, but be prepared to dig mightily for it, then realize you covered up the hole with the excess dirt.
