"The Black Swan" by Nassim Nicholas Taleb (Meeting 1)

  • Chick-fil-A

    9728 Highway 92, Woodstock, GA (map)

    34.086086 -84.525642

  • Review from Amazon:

    A black swan is an event, positive or negative, that is deemed improbable yet causes massive consequences. In this groundbreaking and prophetic book, Taleb shows in a playful way that Black Swan events explain almost everything about our world, and yet we—especially the experts—are blind to them. In this second edition, Taleb has added a new essay, On Robustness and Fragility, which offers tools to navigate and exploit a Black Swan world.

    Meeting 1 on 12/2/2016 covering parts 1 and 2 up to page 212.

    Meeting 2 on 12/16/2016 covering parts 3 and 4 from page 210 to end of book.
