Усе про книжку Antifragile. Things that Gain from Disorder

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.

    Hasn’t the same been written a thousand times before?
    The book of Taleb «Antifragility» attracted me by extremely positive reviews. Having bought this book, I opened it with expectancy of enjoyment.

    Turning over page by page, I expected to read some new ideas, but in the most of cases I saw disrespect to colleagues and really rude comments. Although the book is written in a beautiful manner, it is for people who read a lot.

    If you have not enough time to read, it can be a little bit difficult to perceive the language. The idea, that I liked (but it is not new), is that nobody gets a prize for useful inactivity. That is why we have a lot of fuss in a world that could be harmful.

    For example, a doctor, who allows your body to be cured by itself, doesn’t get any premiums, any praises. In other case a doctor, who convinces a patient that he needs an operation, cures him, putting him at risk and after that he earns a huge amount of money.

    The author writes that the need promotes the development and difficulties promote the success. He writes that modern educational system is not effective because of lack of real practice. He also says that we shouldn’t set equal skills «to do» and «to talk».

    But hasn’t the same been written a thousand times before?

    In my humble opinion, this book is for general readers or for people who want to know that someone smart agrees with their thoughts.
