Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder by Nassim Nicholas Taleb


Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the bestselling writer of The Black Swan and one of the most optimal thinkers of our time, reveals the way to thrive in an unsure global.
just as human bones get sturdyer whilst subjected to fret and tension, and rumors or riots intensify whilst any person attempts to repress them, many things in lifestyles have the benefit of rigidity, disorder, volatility, and turmoil. What Taleb has recognized and calls “antifragile” is that category of items that now not handiest acquire from chaos however want it in an effort to live to tell the tale and flourish. 
In The Black Swan, Taleb showed us that extremely incredible and unpredictable occasions underlie nearly the whole thing approximately our global. In Antifragile, Taleb stands unsurety on its head, making it fascinating, even necessary, and proposes that issues be inbuilt an antifragile approach. The antifragile is beyond the resilient or robust. The resilient resists shocks and remains the same; the antifragile will get better and better.
moreover, the antifragile is immune to prediction errors and safe from antagonistic occasions. Why is the town-state better than the geographical region, why is debt dangerous for you, and why is what we call “environment friendly” now not environment friendly at all? Why do executive responses and social insurance policies offer protection to the sturdy and hurt the weak? Why must you write your resignation letter earlier than even starting on the job? How did the sinking of the sizeable retailer lives? The guide spans innovation through trial and blunder, lifestyles choices, politics, city planning, warfare, personal finance, financial methods, and medicine. And right through, in addition to the road knowledge of fat Tony of Brooklyn, the voices and recipes of historic knowledge, from Roman, Greek, Semitic, and medieval assets, are loud and transparent.
Antifragile is a blueprint for dwelling in a Black Swan global.
Erudite, witty, and iconoclastic, Taleb’s message is modern: The antifragile, and handiest the antifragile, will make it.
