Antifragile, written by Nassim Nicholas Taleb, contains more than four hundred pages (excluding the appendix) of densely packed insights and concentrated doses of ideas. And it would be very hard for me, and unfair to you, if I try to squeeze in all the learning from this book in one article.
So I am going to split this BookWorm post into multiple parts. This is the first part. We will be covering the second part (and more, if required) in subsequent VIA issues.
Nassim Taleb is one of my favourite authors. Before Antifragile he had authored two other best-selling books – The Black Swan and Fooled by Randomness, both of which are also must-reads. In fact, all three books are quite related to each other, like a trilogy. Many of the ideas that Taleb wrote about in his earlier two books, have found their logical conclusion in Antifragile.
