review

Nassim Taleb seems like a very smart person but:

  • book was exremely long, especially to present one main idea
  • the style is quite arrogant, which I didn’t enjoy at all

I liked that he quoted a lot of people in his book, but because of 2 reasons stated above I’m not looking forward to read his other books. It was very painful experience and took me half a year to finish it.
