The Black Swan: Second Edition: The Impact of the Highly Improbable

by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Random House Trade Paperbacks; 2 edition | May 11, 2010



A black swan is an event, positive or negative, that is deemed improbable yet causes massive consequences. In this groundbreaking and prophetic book, Taleb shows in a playful way that Black Swan events explain almost everything about our world, and yet we¡ªespecially the experts¡ªare blind to them. In this second edition, Taleb has added a new essay, On Robustness and Fragility, which offers tools to navigate and exploit a Black Swan world.



AUTHOR INFORMATION:

A former trader, he is currently Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at New York University. He is the author of Fooled by Randomness and The Black Swan, which has spent more than a year on the New York Times bestseller list and has become an intellectual, social, and cultural touchstone.
