The Blackswan - Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Updated: Mar 19, 2021

Nassim defines a black swan as a highly improbable and unpredictable event with a massive impact. The book details how we concentrate on things we already know and time and time again fail to take into consideration what we don’t know. We are, therefore, unable to truly estimate opportunities. Taleb explains everything we know about what we don’t know, and offers simple tricks for dealing with black swans and benefiting from them.
