Taleb’s latest book is a simple book – with a lot of one liners.
Debashis Basu told me at about 3pm on a Saturday evening about this book. So by 3.01 the decision to buy the book was taken. After some work I managed to reach Twistntales – a cosy book shop in Aundh to buy the book..and found it.
However I did not have to buy it – knowing my taste, the book was already set aside for me to take. Thanks Twistntales. I wish I was half as responsive to my clients needs.
Now coming to the book itself – it is priced at Rs. 250 – so for many people reading this blog – it is a buy, and even if you do not like it too much, there cannot be much regret!
The book is full of one-liners and talks about a various aspects of risk…and you will find me increasingly using it – however you will see it as my status in face-book rather than as articles on this blog.
But here are some which are just too good and reflect a lot of my thoughts too:
– Writing is the art of repeating oneself without anyone noticing.
– Most people write so they can remember things, I write to forget.
-No author should be considered as having failed until he starts teaching others about writing.
– A good maxim allows you to have the last word without even starting a conversation.
