antifragile

I’m a big fan of Nassim Nicholas Taleb.

His theories are persuasive to me, I guess, because he says some things I’ve been thinking for a long time (mind you, he says a lot of things that never occurred to me too), and the way he writes is analogous to the theories he puts forward.

I bought Jackson a copy of Taleb’s latest book, Antifragile, for Christmas and couldn’t resist downloading myself a copy on my Kindle.

Typically, and I guess Taleb might concur, a Kindle is not the right medium for his writing because he says so many things worth bookmarking or annotating or quoting, and a book proper is a much better medium for doing that.
