    About the Author

    Nassim Nicholas Taleb has devoted his life to problems of uncertainty, probability, and knowledge. He spent
    nearly two decades as a businessman and quantitative trader before becoming a full-time philosophical essayist and
    academic researcher in 2006. Although he spends most of his time in the intense seclusion of his study, or as a flâneur
    meditating in cafés, he is currently Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at New York University’s Polytechnic
    Institute. His main subject matter is “decision making under opacity”—that is, a map and a protocol on how we should
    live in a world we don’t understand.

    Taleb’s books have been published in thirty-three languages.
