  • Relentless | @farnamstreet @syruspartners
    Fragile systems break under stress, robust systems resist it, and antifragile systems benefit from it. That’s the premise of Taleb’s groundbreaking work, Antifragile. That we should not only prepare for risk, uncertainty and chaos, but invite it, is a revolutionary idea, but Taleb makes a strong case. Throughout the book, he explores the state of politics, urban planning, finances, economics and medicine to illustrate the necessity of building antifragile systems if we want to thrive in this world.
