“The bed of Procrustes. Philosophical and practical aphorisms” Nassim N. Taleb

I’ve just read “The bed of Procrustes. Philosophical and practical aphorisms” Nassim N. Taleb and found it to be absolutely fantastic read. It touches on all the different topics that I’m currently interested in like technology, work, philosophy, ethics. There are dozen of sharp and accurate aphorisms that got me really thinking. I will be sharing some in coming weeks.
