Its a less frightening world than we are led to believe,

This review is from: Antifragile: Things that Gain from Disorder (Hardcover)
All of Nassim Taleb's books remind me of the Michael Douglas film, where the last straw for him is going into a fast food joint and being presented with a tiny dog eared burger when the menu board shows a huge glossy bun.
Mr Taleb (I think he is probably Professor Taleb but given his vitriol for the education profession will use his surname which is probably wrong of me) book, and in particular this one, answer those questions that have been bugging me for 30 years ---- why do we do it this way when it is wrong, doesn't work and we know it?
Get this book - and give it time and read the back story - the proper, autodidact, erudition shines out!
