Summary
Nassim Nicholas Taleb presents his ideas about life in the form of aphorisms, the world's earliest literary form. We humans, facing the limits of our knowledge, the unseen and the unknown, resolve the tension by squeezing life and the world into crisp commoditized ideas, reductive categories, specific vocabularies and pre-packaged narratives
