ANTIFRAGILE Things That Gain from Disorder

by | Read by Joe Ochman

Contemporary Culture • 16.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Not every book makes a successful transition from print to audio. Nassim Taleb's most recent offering, presenting more of his theories and observations on the unpredictability of the universe and how that affects our existence, is a case in point. Narrator Joe Ochman presents the material clearly enough, but his brisk pace adds to the challenge of absorbing such complex information. The difficulty is then increased by the lack of access to supplementary visuals meant to provide further explanations and clarity. This is a poor choice for an audiobook and may prove difficult even for listeners familiar with Taleb's work. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2013]
