Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder Audiobook Mp3 by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Antifragile is a standalone book in Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s landmark Incerto series, an investigation of opacity, luck, uncertainty, probability, human error, risk, and decision-making in a world we don’t understand. The other books in the series are Fooled by Randomness, The Black Swan, and The Bed of Procrustes.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the bestselling author of The Black Swan and one of the foremost thinkers of our time, reveals how to thrive in an uncertain world.
 
Just as human bones get stronger when subjected to stress and tension, and rumors or riots intensify when someone tries to repress them, many things in life benefit from stress, disorder, volatility, and turmoil. What Taleb has identified and calls “antifragile” is that category of things that not only gain from chaos but need it in order to survive and flourish. 
 
In The Black Swan, Taleb showed us that highly improbable and unpredictable events underlie almost everything about our world. In Antifragile, Taleb stands uncertainty on its head, making it desirable, even necessary, and proposes that things be built in an antifragile manner. The antifragile is beyond the resilient or robust. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better and better.
 
Furthermore, the antifragile is immune to prediction errors and protected from adverse events. Why is the city-state better than the nation-state, why is debt bad for you, and why is what we call “efficient” not efficient at all? Why do government responses and social policies protect the strong and hurt the weak? Why should you write your resignation letter before even starting on the job? How did the sinking of the Titanic save lives? The book spans innovation by trial and error, life decisions, politics, urban planning, war, personal finance, economic systems, and medicine. And throughout, in addition to the street wisdom of Fat Tony of Brooklyn, the voices and recipes of ancient wisdom, from Roman, Greek, Semitic, and medieval sources, are loud and clear.
 
Antifragile is a blueprint for living in a Black Swan world.
 
Erudite, witty, and iconoclastic, Taleb’s message is revolutionary: The antifragile, and only the antifragile, will make it.

    Incredible. Nassim is a unique intellect with an inspiring and fresh perspective on economics, philosophy, business, nutrition, exercise... the list continues. Nassim writes the way he speaks, straight to the point, no nonsense, with insightful stories and analogies to enhance his statements. The narrator captures Nassim's inflection and enthusiasm Highly recommended.

    Taleb's book focuses on the core issue of anti-fragility which can be transferred across most subjects. The book is highly "repetitive" which as any great speaker knows is a tool to get people to really grasp the concept. He goes into extensive detail and though many historical examples and philosophers to which he accredits the uncovering of the concept of anti-fragility. Of course he recognizes and expresses that the doer innately understands anti-fragility yet it eludes the spotlight in the academic realm. If you read this book you will learn anti-fragility in depth. Bottom line: If you are really interested or using anti-fragility for a real world application then you should listen/read this book. If you're just trying to grasp the concept quickly and move on I suggest either reading a couple of sections from this book or getting your anti-fragility knowledge from Taleb's other sources, or getting that knowledge through experience.

    Painful to listen to as he repeats antifragile over and over for different situations. Instead of making up words, call it was it is, adaptability. I couldn't finish the book, would not recommend using your credit on this one.

    Boring and repetitive. If you pick this book to read (or listen), you already know that you learn from failure, and trial and error.
