October’s Alumni Book Club is the Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable by Nicholas Taleb.
Is it necessary to become more resilient against events that seem highly improbable and unpredictable? What if such events are in fact more common than is often perceived? How then do we address what we know about what we don’t know?
The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable by Nassim Nicholas Taleb is a must read for both business leaders and policy makers, illuminating stunning revelations about our own biases that restrict our thinking. We recommend picking up the 2nd edition, which includes a new essay by Taleb following the financial crisis.
