“Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder”, by Nassim-Nicholas Taleb – the fourth book I like a lot

I read “Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder“, by Nassim-Nicholas Taleb.

The main message fot eh book is that we should not seek to live a life without any errors, but instead learn to constantly overcome small errors, thus becoming stronger, and thus capable of handling big problems, when they arise.

Taleb stands uncertainty on its head, making it desirable, and proposing that things be built in an antifragile manner. Extremely ambitious and multidisciplinary, Antifragility provides a blueprint for how to behave-and thrive-in a world we don’t understand and which is too uncertain for us to even try to understand. He who is not antifragile will perish.
