The Black Swan - Celebrating Randomness and Uncertainty

The Black Swan - Celebrating Randomness and Uncertainty

•Craig Heneghan enjoys reading history and finance books. Among Craig Heneghan's favorite books is the 2007 best seller The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable, which was written by epistemologist and financial scholar Nassim Nicholas Taleb.

•The book narrates the impact of sudden, unpredictable events (also known as "black swan" events) on financial systems and the way people try to rationalize these rare deviations using simplistic and irrational methods. Aside from explaining this philosophy, Taleb goes into great detail about how people and institutions can exploit black swan events and use them to their advantage.

•The black swan theory on randomness and uncertainty, which forms the basis for most of the book's narrative, was first introduced in Taleb's earlier work, Fooled by Randomness. When The Black Swan was released in 2007, it spent nearly 17 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. It has also been translated into 27 languages.
