About this Episode

Nassim Nicholas Taleb present a blueprint of how to live in a 'Black Swan' world.

He begins the book:

"Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility, randomness, disorder, and stressors and love adventure, risk, and uncertainty. Yet, in spite of the ubiquity of the phenomenon, there is no word for the exact opposite of fragile. Let us call it antifragile. Antifragility is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better"

He spends the rest of the book explaining how to become antifragile. It is a great resource for anyone wanting to have greater control on a random world and to grow stronger as things go wrong.
