  1. says:

    Entertaining, witty but also has depth. Definitely makes you think and leaves you with questions (sometimes).

  2. says:

    This is the book to give a teenage boy looking for a solid foundation on how to live well

  3. says:

    It's not a bad book, it has witty quotes and thoughts expressed within, but I much prefer the books which unfold as interestingly and chaotic as randomness.

  4. says:

    Nassim taleb is always entertaining, witty and thought provoking! I don't know why I didnt realise this, but was at first surprised that the book consists of just aphorims, nothing else, but it grows on me.I read a few every day and ponder them.

  5. says:

    Quite a disappointment. It would appear to be money for old rope. Anyone, but anyone could have thrown this together after spending a day trawling the internet. What a let down Nassim, I guess you must have needed the easy money or had to meet a publisher’s deadline.

  6. says:

    Wonderful bedside book of what I would call quips. It is like a licorice, sherbet dip. With every dip you get another nice tangy taste.

    The second time I opened this book a number of the pages fell out.

  8. says:

    This is Taleb distilled. I've read his other books, so it's not possible to know how they would sound and feel to the uninitiated. Worth a try I'd say.

  9. says:

    A unusual read. This is not a naval gazing book. Read the talebs other books first and it will give context to the tone of voice this is written in.

  10. says:

    In few words, Taleb manages to get you thinking deeply about a great many things. This is a light volume compared to Black Swan or Fooled By Randomness but no less powerful.
