Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Partial Rating: 2.75/5
After reading 216 pages, I performed a cost/benefit analysis and decided not to continue. Antifragility is an interesting concept with wide ranging applications, but not wide enough to be of practical use to a person in my situation; and this book is just not intriguing or entertaining enough to read for its own sake. It's very challenging, sometimes hard to follow, and the author has a bit of an attitude problem, taking pot-shots at just about everyone. I look forward to the day someone writes a more accessible book on this topic.
