A black swan is a highly improbable event with three principal characteristics: It is unpredictable; it carries a massive impact; and, after the fact, we concoct an explanation that makes it appear less random, and more predictable, than it was.

Lecturing Birds on Flying: Can Mathematical Theories Destroy the Financial Markets? Pablo Triana, Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Publisher: Wiley; 1 edition (June 9, 2009) | ISBN: n/a | Language English | Audio CD in MP3/Variable + PDF (ebook 401 p) | 551 MB

For the past few decades, the financial world has often displayed an unreasonable willingness to believe that "the model is right, the market is wrong," in spite of the fact that these theoretical machinations were largely responsible for the stock market crash of 1987, the LTCM crisis of 1998, the credit crisis of 2008, and many other blow-ups, large and small. Why have both financial insiders (traders, risk managers, executives) and outsiders (academics, journalists, regulators, the public) consistently demonstrated a willingness to treat quantifications as gospel' Nassim Taleb first addressed the conflicts between theoretical and real finance in his technical treatise on options, Dynamic Hedging…

If the prescriptions for getting rich that are outlined in books such as The Millionaire Next Door and Rich Dad Poor Dad are successful enough to make the books bestsellers, then one must ask, Why aren't there more millionaires? In Fooled by Randomness, Nassim Nicholas Taleb, a professional trader and mathematics professor, examines what randomness means in business and in life and why human beings are so prone to mistake dumb luck for consummate skill. This eccentric and highly personal exploration of the nature of randomness meanders from the court of Croesus and trading rooms in New York and London to Russian roulette, Monte Carlo engines, and the philosophy of Karl Popper. Part of what makes this book so good is Taleb's ability to make seemingly arcane mathematical concepts (at least to this reviewer) entirely relevant in evaluating and understanding everything from the stock market to the success of those millionaires cited in the aforementioned bestsellers. Here's an articulate, wise, and humorous meditation on the nature of success and failure that anyone who wants a little more of the former would do well to consider. Highly recommended. –Harry C. Edwards –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Formes noires fantomatiques, sombres silhouettes drapées, visages de femmes mangés par le tissu : pourquoi de telles images, désormais familières, dérangent-elles ? Pourquoi le port du voile blesse-t-il à ce point le regard des Européens ? Loin des polémiques, Bruno Nassim Aboudrar renouvelle le débat et met au jour les malentendus qui entourent cette pratique millénaire. Le voile n'est pas spécifiquement musulman : il l'est devenu. Presque absente du Coran, c'est une prescription construite progressivement, au terme d'une histoire dont l'épisode colonial est un chapitre majeur. …
