    Inhaltsangabe

    Maverick thinker Nassim Nicholas Taleb had an illustrious career on Wall Street before turning his focus to his black swan theory. Not all swans are white, and not all events, no matter what the experts think, are predictable. Taleb shows that black swans, like 9/11, cannot be foreseen and have an immeasurable impact on the world.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "[Taleb] administers a severe thrashing to MBA- and Nobel Prize-credentialed experts who make their living from economic forecasting." ( Booklist)
    "The hubris of predictions - and our perpetual surprise when the not-predicted happens - are themes of Nassim Nicholas Taleb's engaging new book....It concerns the occurrence of the improbable, the power of rare events and the author's lament that 'in spite of the empirical record we continue to project into the future as if we were good at it.'" ( The New York Times)

    Intriguing idea, too much repetition.

    It's a very interesting book, but the author keeps making the same point on and on.... you could but the book in half. The speaker pronounces French quite strangely. overall, I would recommend it because it raises an important point

    Fooled by being a human being

    A must for everybody who thinks himself as an analytical person. Although fat tails have entered into the common knowledge of many of us, we still remain fooled by randomness and I only was able to utter "of course" after misinterpreting a good number of the examples.

    when the reader needs too mich attention

    The man who was recorded here is doing far too much. The content comes across as smug and overconfident and the constant overinflection actually distracts from the book he is reading. I couldn't finish and will read the paperback.

    The book relies on repetition

    Good theories but the book could be easily half the length. For some inexplicable reason, there's over 100 chapters in this book, each just a few pages long (2mins per chapter). It's hard to discern what is important and what not if your book has 100 chapter.. A horrible choice to structure a book.

    Also the speaker's performance is not to my liking.

    very interesting but inefficient

    A lot of shit-talk in all direction. Not very structured. Better to read a summary.

    a book of many colors

    This book is soothing for the people that seem to miss the train and follow the herd. Also for the overachiever, it is a good read to understand, why life is still not totally predictable. It is partially using vast vocabulary, yet never boring. Thanks. I will honor it, by applying for my mine and the life of my customers.

    As entertaining as educational. Speaker nailed it

    Optional review requires at least 15 words? What is this? Is there a way to just rate it???

    Must have

    Valuable, open eye, Aha moments, elegant way and not complicated to follow although the topic covered are not an easy stuff to digest but respect. The reader is one of the best I heard. Usually, I get really annoyed by the readers well most of them and especially the book authors who also read their books. But this reader David Chandler big big thanks!!! Well received.
