    This book is antifragile in its information

    The idea that Mr. Taleb wants the reader to understand is quite interesting, and I have come to notice it in real life. I would hope that another book would focus on the way that such thinking is applied, not in stories that has happened, but in ways that one would act upon. Identifying the antifragile from the fragile could be quite challenging although I belive that Mr. Taleb did quite well in drawing the line there and pointing the differences. Mr. Taleb, I thank you for such a wonderful book, and I am quite certain I would return to read it again, as some parts where to me a bit challenging to grasp, though I know it would be quite clear to others. Regard,

    Overblown nonsense

    Taleb undermines his own argument of antifragility in the prologue by stating that we should "protect" risk takers. Some interesting points made about overprotection (of ourselves and society in general) but it just doesn't add up. And Taleb comes across as self-aggrandising, which makes this a very long slog.
