- Eye Opening
- Concrete Examples
Essayist and scholar Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s hilarious, merciless and eye-opening book will make you think, even though he showcases his disdain for just about every institution and educated person. Devoted conservatives and anyone who rails against the establishment might enjoy this most, but all those who heed Taleb’s advice to consider what he means, and not at what he writes, will be intrigued. His message: Do things you believe in deeply and stick your neck out for them. But if you have no skin in the game, keep quiet.
