Skin in the Game

Hidden Asymmetries in Daily Life

Stick Your Neck Out

by David Meyer

Get involved, says Nassim Nicholas Taleb, but only if you care enough to invest your time, money or commitment. You've got to have skin in the game.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s hilarious, merciless and eye-opening New York Times bestseller 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 – not only what he writes – will find intriguing and helpful guidance.

His message: Do things you deeply believe in and stick your neck out for them. But if you have no skin in the game, just hush.
