This post is in continuation of my book review series (see here)
The Bed of Procrustes is written by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.
It is a slim book full of aphorisms (pithy statements) by Taleb.
Some samples are:
Someone from your social class who becomes poor affects you more than thousands of starving ones outside of it
For the robust, an error is information; for the fragile, an error is error
A more detailed and funnier review can be found here
All in all, this book is thoroughly avoidable.
