Haven't read the book yet. Bought it ahead for November's book club discussion. Plan on reading it this fall.

Interesting but . . . .

by John T on Feb 13, 2011

This book has some interesting ideas, but it is somewhat annoying. The author is full of himself and wanders off the subject. However, it does get better as you work through it.

The author's snarky tone turned me off. He came off as such a smirking know-it-all that I didn't care what startling new conclusions he had reached.

an entertainment lacking in quantitative support

by crunch on Apr 22, 2010

The book arrived with an unreported broken binding. Taleb's content is entertaining and a useful if informal index of authors he mentions in passing, however as a standalone piece, it lacks substantive value (which I'm sure Taleb himself would admit).

Nice book. Intellectual and eye - opening. I recommend to read this book for everyone interested in different point of view.
