The Bed of Procrustes PODCAST 96

I’ve got a short read on the menu today for our 96th installment of the MOLON LABE Male Defender podcast. It’s The Bed of Procrustes: Philosophical and Practical Aphorisms by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. These are sayings or bon mots that he has penned. Some relate to his books but many of them are general. I’d say about 100 of these bon mots are great. It may be a thin book but its weighty in all the right places. Some of them you’ll need to read three times.

As you know from our last podcast I’m a big fan of Taleb’s. The Bed of Procrustes is the third book in the author’s Incerto series. We’ve reviewed (now) books 2, 3, and 4 (Antifragile) here at Male Defender. Taleb is currently working on book 5. I have no idea when it will be published, but it will be called Skin In the Game: The Thrills and Logic of Risk Taking. If you follow the link you’ll be able to see some of his early, unpublished work on Skin In the Game.
