it was ok

I just hate his writing. He presents offer and over the same handful of ideas about fat tailed risks and how the market misprices them. It gets a bit preachy and I'm someone who agrees with most of what Taleb is writing about. Unfortunately much of the problem has to do with incentives and people just don't have the incentives to address those issues.
