Some days ago, I finished Siddharta by Herman Hesse, a very strange and compelling book that immediately jumped into my life changing shelf of my library. One particular passage in this book hit me with the velocity of a full-speed train
It’s been quite a long time since a book changed or challenged so much of the things I believed in, and this is exactly what Antifragile has done on an unbelievable amount of levels (politics, health, work, ethics, …).
At 29 years old, I realized I was a reader, meaning that I was understanding things in a clearer way when reading them instead of listening to them. This might appear quite simple, but this really helped me understand a lot of things about myself.
This book felt like an endless streak of slaps in the face, presenting every bias one might have. I think I might have checked all of them, even the one I didn’t think I had. It does a really good job in explaining our common bias by providing solid links to scientific studies and real life examples that we can all relate too.
