Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Nassim Nicholas Taleb and the Incerto collection
 
“The hottest thinker in the world.”The Sunday Times (London)
 
“[Taleb writes] in a style that owes as much to Stephen Colbert as it does to Michel de Montaigne. . . . We eagerly romp with him through the follies of confirmation bias [and] narrative fallacy.”The Wall Street Journal
 
“The most prophetic voice of all . . . a genuinely significant philosopher.”GQ
 
“Startling . . . richly crammed with insights, stories, fine phrases and intriguing asides.”The Wall Street Journal, on Antifragile
 
“A bold book explaining how and why we should embrace uncertainty, randomness, and error . . . It may just change our lives.”Newsweek, on Antifragile
 
 “[A book] that altered modern thinking.”The Times (London), on The Black Swan
 
“Idiosyncratically brilliant.”—Niall Ferguson, Los Angeles Times, on The Black Swan
 
“Engaging . . . The Black Swan has appealing cheek and admirable ambition.”The New York Times Book Review
 
“[Fooled by Randomness] is to conventional Wall Street wisdom approximately what Martin Luther’s ninety-five theses were to the Catholic Church.”—Malcolm Gladwell, The New Yorker
 
“Taleb’s crystalline nuggets of thought stand alone like esoteric poems.”—Financial Times, on The Bed of Procrustes

About the Author

Nassim Nicholas Taleb spent two decades as a trader and risk taker before becoming a full-time essayist and scholar focusing on practical, philosophical, and mathematical problems with chance, luck, and probability. His focus is on how different systems handle disorder. Taleb is currently Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at New York University’s School of Engineering, but he spends most of his time in the intense seclusion of his study, or as a flâneur meditating in cafés. Taleb’s books have been published in thirty-five languages.
