Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder
Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the bestselling author of "The Black Swan" and one of the foremost thinkers of our time, reveals how to thrive in an uncertain world. Just as human bones get stronger when subjected to stress and tension, many things in life benefit from stress, disorder, volatility, and turmoil. What Taleb has identified and calls antifragile are things that not only gain from chaos but need it in order to survive and flourish.In "The Black Swan", Taleb showed us that highly improbable and unpredictable events underlie almost everything about our world. Here Taleb stands uncer-tainty on its head, making it desirable, even necessary. The antifragile is beyond the resilient or robust.The resil-ient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better and better. What's more, the antifragile is immune to prediction errors and protected from adverse events. Why is the city-state better than the nation-state, why is debt bad for you, and why is what we call "efficient" not efficient at all? Why do government responses and social policies protect the strong and hurt the weak? Why should you write your resignation letter before starting on the job?How did the sinking of the Titanic save lives? The book spans innovation by trial and error, life decisions, politics, urban planning, war, personal finance, economic systems and medicine, drawing on modern street wisdom and ancient sources."Antifragile" is a blueprint for living in a Black Swan world. Erudite, witty, and iconoclastic, Taleb's message is revolutionary: the antifragile, and only the antifragile, will make it. Nassim Nicholas Taleb has devoted his life to problems of uncertainty, probability, and knowledge and has led three careers around this focus, as a businessman-trader, a philosophical essayist, and an academic researcher.Although he now spends most of his time working in intense seclusion in his study, in the manner of independent scholars, he is currently Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at New York University's Polytechnic Institute. His main subject matter is "decision making under opacity," that is, a map and a protocol on how we should live in a world we don't understand. His books "Fooled by Randomness" and "The Black Swan" have been published in thirty-three languages.Taleb believes that prizes, honorary degrees, awards, and ceremonialism debase knowledge by turning it into a spectator sport.

Domnul Ibrahim si florile din Coran
Parisul anilor '60. Cartierul evreiesc. Moise, un pusti singuratic, parasit de mama, locuieste cu un tata neurastenic si observa lumea cea mare si ciudata de la inaltimea celor unsprezece ani ai sai. Domnul Ibrahim, bacanul musulman care pare sa cunoasca secretul fericirii, sade de dimineata pana seara pe taburetul din pravalie si contempla aceeasi lume cu detasarea senectutii. Dar intr-o buna zi privirile celor doi se intalnesc si, din vorba in vorba, din poveste in poveste, Moise ajunge invatacelul bacanului arab care-i desluseste tainele iubirii de oameni. Dupa ce tatal baiatului dispare fara urma, batranul il adopta pe micul orfan si impreuna traverseaza Europa spre Cornul de Aur, taramul vegheat de legile sfinte ale Coranului. Calatoria spre lumea nebanuita si stranie din inima Orientului cu moschei si dervisi rotitori e o parabola a vietii si a mortii, care surprinde si indeamna la meditatie.
