Customer Review

on 23 December 2012
Taleb is a clever man, but it is the mark of the insecure to have to keep reminding us of it all the time. Which is a pity, because if only his writing was as good as his brain we would really be onto something here.

Worth 5 stars for the content in spite of the style. Basically his thesis is that the route to happiness is being able to take the crap and not just walk through it but grow from it, listen only to others doing the same, and ignore anybody (the majority) not doing likewise.

It's hard work but he writes convincingly and it's worth it in the end. Just don't put him in charge of anything. He would make Stalin look like a simpering inadequate.
