Black Swan

Taleb is one of the great story tellers I have seen. If you believe in pattern matching, this book will tell you why its limited. As the name suggests, you might have the belief that all swans are white. In fact these beliefs might be passed from generation to generation until one day you see a “black” swan. Black swan is a rare event that can break your entire belief, predictive models and viewpoint towards things. It’s a must read.
