Ola Olusoga (Cofundador/Populum)Como Charlie Munger disse uma vez: “Há muito tempo acredito que um determinado sistema – que quase qualquer pessoa inteligente pode aprender – funciona muito melhor do que os sistemas que a maioria das pessoas usa [para entender o mundo]. O que você precisa é de uma treliça de modelos mentais em sua cabeça. E, com esse sistema, as coisas gradualmente se encaixam de uma maneira que aprimora a cognição. Assim como vários fatores moldam cada sistema, vários modelos mentais de uma variedade de disciplinas são necessários para entender esse sistema.” Você pode ler este livro para começar a construir uma “treliça de modelos mentais em sua cabeça”.

And throw in “The Black Swan” and “Fooled by Randomness”.
“Fragile” means if you hit something might break.
“Resilient” means if you hit something, it will stay the same.
On my podcast Nassim discusses “Antifragility” – building a system, even on that works for you on a personal level, where you if you harm your self in some way it becomes stronger.
That podcast changed my life
He discusses Antifragility throughout history, up to our current economic situation, and even in our personal situations.
Darvin Kurniawan (CEO & Founder/CrowdVilla)"The Black Swan" by Nassim Nicholas Taleb (and basically the others in the series like "Fooled by Randomness" and "Antifragile") are also my favourites. It explained things that I sort of felt existed but unable to articulate. These books explained it well, about the role of chance/probability and randomness, in our lives.
Anant Jain (Cofundador/CommonLounge)The five-book series, "Incerto", by Nassim Nicholas Taleb has had a profound impact on how I think about the world. There’s some overlap across the books — but you'll likely find the repetition helpful in retaining the content better.
Now in a striking new hardcover edition, Fooled by Randomness is the word-of-mouth sensation that will change the way you think about business and the world. Nassim Nicholas Taleb–veteran trader, renowned risk expert, polymathic scholar, erudite raconteur, and New York Times bestselling author of The Black Swan–has written a modern classic that turns on its head what we believe about luck and skill.
This book is about luck–or more precisely, about how we perceive and deal with luck in life and business. Set against the backdrop of the most conspicuous forum in which luck is mistaken for skill–the world of trading–Fooled by Randomness provides captivating insight into one of the least understood factors in all our lives. Writing in an entertaining narrative style, the author tackles major intellectual issues related to the underestimation of the influence of happenstance on our lives.
The book is populated with an array of characters, some of whom have grasped, in their own way, the significance of chance: the baseball legend Yogi Berra; the philosopher of knowledge Karl Popper; the ancient world’s wisest man, Solon; the modern financier George Soros; and the Greek voyager Odysseus. We also meet the fictional Nero, who seems to understand the role of randomness in his professional life but falls victim to his own superstitious foolishness.
However, the most recognizable character of all remains unnamed–the lucky fool who happens to be in the right place at the right time–he embodies the “survival of the least fit.” Such individuals attract devoted followers who believe in their guru’s insights and methods. But no one can replicate what is obtained by chance.
Are we capable of distinguishing the fortunate charlatan from the genuine visionary? Must we always try to uncover nonexistent messages in random events? It may be impossible to guard ourselves against the vagaries of the goddess Fortuna, but after reading Fooled by Randomness we can be a little better prepared.
