from the first edition to the second edition, it MIGHT be of help to those of use having bought the first one. But ABSOLUTELY NOTHING has been issued. Quite idiotic to my sense to send out recommendations for us buyers of the first edition to also buy the 2nd. With absolutely ZERO, NADA information. One wonders if they have employed robots instead of employees.

Taken from his personal website (http://www.fooledbyrandomness.com/):
"I added close to 100 pages to The Black Swan (new material On Robustness & Fragility) for the paperback version (May 2010). The addition will be published as a separate book Réflexions philosophiques in France (Les Belles Lettres) --as well as Italy, Russia,Germany, Finland, The Netherlands, Japan, etc."

Included in the text is a link for the new essay in pdf format: http://www.fooledbyrandomness.com/robustness.pdf

Finally, screenshots from Random House's previews of the two editions:
