The Black Swan

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Narrated By: David Chandler

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: September 2007

Duration: 14 hours 21 minutes

Summary:

Maverick thinker Nassim Nicholas Taleb had an illustrious career on Wall Street before turning his focus to his black swan theory. Not all swans are white, and not all events-no matter what the experts think-are predictable. Taleb shows that black swans, like 9/11, cannot be foreseen and have an immeasurable impact on the world. '[Taleb] administers a severe thrashing to MBA- and Nobel Prize-credentialed experts who make their living from economic forecasting.'-Booklist

    Some good ideas but nothing new. Reading the Thora will make you wiser and better prepared for black swans. Otherwise a good read.

    Obvious, but unnoticed principles pointed out well. but in too much complicated words and English, long and fancy sentences which bores listener. Seems like the author is paid by words. Otherwise very good observations and opinions.
