The thing that makes my blood boil about dumb shit like "antifragile" is that it's a made up word for a word that already exists: "stable". Either he decided to make up a new name because if he used the correct name, people would google "stability" and then think to themselves, "Wow these equations were described many, many years before anyone currently on planet Earth was born," and it would be bad for sales. Or he is so bad at research that he just thought of something and unilaterally decided it was novel. I had not heard of him until antifragile came out and he as all of a sudden on every TV and radio program. However, I have never and will never read anything by him based on this set of facts.
