A condensed guide to life from the bestselling author of "The Black Swan", Nassim Nicholas Taleb's "The Bed of Procrustes" is an invaluable collection of aphorisms navigate the modern world. Why are we so often unwilling to accept that life is unpredictable? In this brilliant book Nassim Nicholas Taleb distils his idiosyncratic wisdom to demolish our illusions, contrasting the classical values of courage, elegance and erudition against modern philistinism and phoniness. Only by accepting what we don't know, he shows, can we see the world as it really is. "Happily provocative ...blistering ...his observations concern superiority, wealth, suckerdom, academia, modernity, technology and the all-purpose, ignorant "they" ...very quotable". ("The New York Times"). "A master philosopher". ("The Times"). "Taleb's crystalline nuggets of thought stand alone like esoteric poems". ("Financial Times"). "Opinionated and witty...It showcases his wit and learning, and provides ways to fillet his enemies". ("Independent on Sunday"). Nassim Nicholas Taleb spends most of his time as a flaneur, meditating in cafes across the planet.
A former trader, he is currently Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at New York University. He is the author of "Fooled by Randomness" and "The Black Swan", an international bestseller which has become an intellectual, social, and cultural touchstone.

The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbableの感想・レビュー・書評




  • とても今更だけどAudiobookにて読了。意識高い系かとあまり期待せずに聴いてたけど、思ってたより面白かった。哲学的。




  • "The Black Swan" by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

  • 統計学的手法を使って社会や経済に関する分析を行うのがなぜ詐欺なのかを説明した本。経済の専門家を自称するひとたちを何故あてにしてはならないのかが分かります。放射能に関する問題も時折出てきて、今の日本にぴったり。日本人は絶対読むべきと思います。

  • ブラックスワンの意味については賛同。ではどうしたらよいのかについては書かれていないが、それはきっと無理なのだろう。英語は簡単。フタクタルは概念としいては興味深いけど...

  • "Fooled..."とのGreat Value Pack(2100円,丸善)

  • まだ翻訳本は出てないので
