Antifragile

"Examples of Antifragility: When you stress your body by lifting a big weight, your body gets stronger. New York has the best restaurants in the world because particular restaurants are always going bust, making the aggregate stronger and stronger, or antifragile. Evolution is antifragile. Certain business and investment strategies are antifragile. Older things tend to be more antifragile than newer ones - because they've been exposed to more Black Swans"--

  • "Why is the city-state better than the nation-state, and why is what we call "efficient" is not efficient at all? Why should you write your resignation letter before starting on the job? How did the sinking of the Titanic save lives? This title shows us that improbable and unpredictable events underlie everything about our world."
  • "Just as human bones get stronger when subjected to stress and tension, many things in life benefit from stress, disorder, volatility, and turmoil. In this title, the author shows that highly improbable and unpredictable events underlie almost everything about our world. Taleb tells us how to live in a world that is unpredictable and chaotic, and how to thrive during moments of disaster."

  • ""The acclaimed author of the influential bestseller The Black Swan, Nicholas Nassim Taleb takes a next big step with a deceptively simple concept: the "antifragile." Like the Greek hydra that grows two heads for each one it loses, people, systems, and institutions that are antifragile not only withstand shocks, they benefit from them. In a modern world dominated by chaos and uncertainty, Antifragile is a revolutionary vision from one of the most subversive and important thinkers of our time"--"

  • "In seinem Weltbestseller "Der Schwarze Schwan" problematisierte Nassim Nicholas Taleb die zunehmende Unberechenbarkeit der Welt. Jetzt liegt sein wichtigstes Buch vor: In "Antifragilität" liefert Taleb die große, praktisch-philosophische Antwort auf die Herausforderungen unsicherer Zeiten. Nicht indem wir Zufälle und Ungewissheit um jeden Preis abzuwehren versuchen, gewinnen wir, sondern indem wir sie zu Stärken ummünzen. Bestand hat nur das Antifragile. Alles, was nicht antifragil ist, wird verschwinden. Antifragilität ist weit mehr als Robustheit oder Resilienz. Während das Widerstandsfähige im besten Fall einen Zustand beibehalten kann, wird das Antifragile besser und besser. Und es ist immun gegenüber falschen Vorhersagen. Warum kleine Strukturen besser sind als große, Stadtstaaten besser als Nationen, warum Schulden uns schaden und warum das, was wir als "effizient" bezeichnen, alles andere als effizient ist. Talebs Beispiele bedienen das ganze Spektrum von Finanzen und Wirtschaft, Politik, Wissenschaft und Privatleben. Multidisziplinär und mit großer Übersicht umreißt "Antifragilität" ein neues Denken für eine Welt, die bei allem Fortschritt niemals berechenbar sein wird."
