Distilled brilliance

If you're a fan of his previous work, this is like a Capstone book to cover all the previous ones. He brings in various concepts from Fooled by Randomness, Black Swan, among others and binds it in a cohesive story. Antifragility refers to systems that get better upon being subjected to external stress/strain as opposed to merely withstanding it/breaking under it. Not only does he give examples of this, with progress in the book, you'll be able to see how one can benefit in one's life from using antifragility.

A Stand on Philosophy.

Encourages a drastic shift of mental outlook which in consequence help inform one's actions. As modernity evolves out there so should our thinking process to adept it to the ever changing environs no matter however twisted the notions seem to be at first sight. The author has fulfilled the demand with his independent thinking adequately in this book.

Excellent perception of modern times

Taleb's books are always different. This one is even more different and fantastic in having a different perception for this modern days. Antifragile is a new term framed by him. Great to read.

Nassim Taleb at his best!!

The book shows how Taleb is an intellectual superman. His aphorisms are the best of their kind. Amazing, worth every penny!!
All of Nassim's books are a must buy for those who wish to learn some "out of the text" stuff on current practical issues.

In other words, events that rarely show up but have intense and lasting consequences. And when they do, they affect us profoundly.
