“Antifragile” Book Review

Recently, I’ve joined an amazing mastermind program with Perry Marshall, an amazing guy who wrote Evolution 2.0.

In that mastermind group, we’ve discussed a lot of things, including this book that I’ve read a while ago but never done a review on it.

Antifragile is an amazing book for everyone that wants to understand more of life and how events can shape our life.

Here is the book description extracted from Amazon:
“Antifragile is a standalone book in Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s landmark Incerto series, an investigation of opacity, luck, uncertainty, probability, human error, risk, and decision-making in a world we don’t understand. The other books in the series are Fooled by Randomness, The Black Swan, and The Bed of Procrustes.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the bestselling author of The Black Swan and one of the foremost thinkers of our time, reveals how to thrive in an uncertain world.

Just as human bones get stronger when subjected to stress and tension, and rumors or riots intensify when someone tries to repress them, many things in life benefit from stress, disorder, volatility, and turmoil. What Taleb has identified and calls “antifragile” is that category of things that not only gain from chaos but need it in order to survive and flourish.

In The Black Swan, Taleb showed us that highly improbable and unpredictable events underlie almost everything about our world. In Antifragile, Taleb stands uncertainty on its head, making it desirable, even necessary, and proposes that things be built in an antifragile manner. The antifragile is beyond the resilient or robust. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better and better.

Furthermore, the antifragile is immune to prediction errors and protected from adverse events. Why is the city-state better than the nation-state, why is debt bad for you, and why is what we call “efficient” not efficient at all? Why do government responses and social policies protect the strong and hurt the weak? Why should you write your resignation letter before even starting on the job? How did the sinking of the Titanic save lives? The book spans innovation by trial and error, life decisions, politics, urban planning, war, personal finance, economic systems, and medicine. And throughout, in addition to the street wisdom of Fat Tony of Brooklyn, the voices and recipes of ancient wisdom, from Roman, Greek, Semitic, and medieval sources, are loud and clear.

Antifragile is a blueprint for living in a Black Swan world.

Erudite, witty, and iconoclastic, Taleb’s message is revolutionary: The antifragile, and only the antifragile, will make it.”

Should I Learn Multiple Disciplines?

Learning is something I believe every software developer should master. I’ve already talked several times about the importance of learning and how it can help you build a solid career and cope with all the rapid pace that technology changes nowadays.

So, the question today is about learning multiple disciplines. Should you do it?

I’ve talked a lot about specialization and niching down and how this is important for developers, especially for establishing yourself in your field.

So, how should you do it? Should you even do it? Is it a smart choice?

“Cosmosapiens” Book Review

So, recently I’ve been digging a lot on the science stuff. Since my Interview with Perry Marshall, I’ve discovered a lot of new and exciting stuff about science.

This is why I decided to read Cosmosapiens and I was delighted by it. probably the best book of the year.

Here is the book description extracted from Amazon:
“Specialist scientific fields are developing at incredibly swift speeds, but what can they really tell us about how the universe began and how we humans evolved to play such a dominant role on Earth?

John Hands’s extraordinarily ambitious quest is to bring together this scientific knowledge and evaluate without bias or preconception all the theories and evidence about the origin and evolution of matter, life, consciousness, and humankind.

This astonishing book provides the most comprehensive account yet of current ideas such as cosmic inflation, dark energy, the selfish gene, and neurogenetic determinism. In the clearest possible prose it differentiates the firmly established from the speculative and examines the claims of various fields such as string theory to approach a unified theory of everything. In doing so it challenges the orthodox consensus in those branches of cosmology, biology, and neuroscience that have ossified into dogma.

Its striking analysis reveals underlying patterns of cooperation, complexification, and convergence that lead to the unique emergence in humans of a self-reflective consciousness that enables us to determine our future evolution.

This groundbreaking book is destined to become a classic of scientific thinking.”

Interview With Perry Marshall – Author Of Evolution 2.0

So, today I’ve partnered up with an amazing amazing professional. In today’s #hoa I will talk with Perry Marshall, the author of “Evolution 2.0”, an amazing book which I had the honor to read.

Nowadays, Perry Marshall works as an internet marketer, being an expert in FB Ads, Google Adwords, etc. However, our talk will round more around the evolutional side of our world. Yeah… You can bet that this will be an amazing talk about the evolution process of our world where we often link our learnings to the software development field.

If you don’t know Perry Marshall, here is a quick text about all that he was able to accomplish:
“Perry Marshall is one of the world’s most expensive and sought-after business consultants. Clients seek his ability to integrate engineering, sales, art and psychology.

He launched two movements in modern marketing. His Google AdWords books laid the foundations for the $100 billion Pay Per Click industry, and techniques he pioneered are standard best practices. He wrote the world’s best selling book on web advertising, Ultimate Guide to Google AdWords.

More recently, he’s turned “80/20″ into a verb. 80/20 is not just a fact about your business, it’s action you take on your business. 80/20 is the central lever for every great strategy. His book 80/20 Sales & Marketing is mandatory in many growing companies.

Works also include bestseller Ultimate Guide to Facebook Advertising (Entrepreneur Press, 2nd Edition 2014), Evolution 2.0: Breaking the Deadlock Between Darwin and Design (BenBella, 2015) and Industrial Ethernet (ISA, 3rd Edition 2016).

He is referenced in dozens of influential business books by authors like Jay Conrad Levinson, Mark Joyner, Joel Comm and Mari Smith. He’s shared the stage with Barbara Corcoran, Brian Tracy and Les Brown, having consulted in over 300 industries.

In 2015 he launched the Evolution 2.0 Prize, which seeks to solve Origin of Information, one of the great unsolved problems of biology.”
