Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable

By Nassim Nicholas Taleb

They say: Nassim Nicholas Taleb distils his idiosyncratic wisdom to demolish our illusions, contrasting the classical values of courage, elegance and erudition against modern philistinism and phoniness. Only by accepting what we don’t know, he shows, can we see the world as it really is.

We say: It’s not a trading book per se, but it’s a must-read for any trader who doesn’t want to find himself caught out by an unpredictable and implausible event that blows his trading strategy out of the water. And it comes highly recommended by Littlefish himself (@LFXSam).
