The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable (Bestsellers Taleb)De (autor) Nassim Nicholas Taleb
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 28 Feb 2008
The phenomenal international bestseller that shows us how to stop trying to predict everything - and take advantage of uncertainty
What have the invention of the wheel, Pompeii, the Wall Street Crash, Harry Potter and the internet got in common? Why are all forecasters con-artists? Why should you never run for a train or read a newspaper?
This book is all about Black Swans: the random events that underlie our lives, from bestsellers to world disasters. Their impact is huge; they're impossible to predict; yet after they happen we always try to rationalize them.

Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express
Radu-Alexandru Grigorescu a dat nota:
Foarte buna cartea. Dl. Taleb are un stil foarte captivant si fascinant de a scrie. Repetitiv pe alocuri, totusi.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb is an uncompromizing no-nonsense thinker for our times. He has spent his life immersing himself in problems of luck, uncertainty, probability, and knowledge, and he has led three high-profile careers around his ideas, as a man of letters, as a businessman-trader, and as a university professor and researcher. He is currently Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at New York University's School of Engineering. He is the author of the 4-volume INCERTO (Antifragile, The Black Swan, Fooled by Randomness, and The Bed of Procrustes). Taleb refuses all awards and honours as they debase knowledge by turning it into competitive sports.
Like the conversation of a raconteur ... hugely enjoyable - compelling
It has altered modern thinking
The Black Swan changed my view of how the world works
Great fun... brash, stubborn, entertaining, opinionated, curious, cajoling
The most prophetic voice of all
