The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

Dubbed the most influential book in recent decades, The Black Swan delves into the profound impact of highly improbable events that shape our world—events that are unpredictable, carry monumental consequences, and are often rationalized in hindsight.

Taleb challenges us to consider why we recognize the significance of black swans only post-event. He suggests that our focus on the known blinds us to the unknown, limiting our perception of opportunity and our understanding of risk.

In this second edition, including the new essay "On Robustness and Fragility," Taleb provides essential insights to navigate a world where black swan events are increasingly shaping our realities. With a narrative that is as engaging as it is enlightening, Taleb's polymathic expertise from cognitive science to probability theory renders The Black Swan a seminal read—indeed, a black swan itself.
