Antifragile - Book by Nassim Taleb

Antifragility means that things belonging to a dynamic, unstable, and random system benefit from this disorder over time. For instance, religions become stronger during chaotic times characterized by disorder, as people seek refuge in religiosity, and religion provides them with support. On the other hand, fragile things need order to survive and require significant effort for maintenance. Fragile objects like vases or porcelain must constantly be protected from hazards, just as other fragile systems (such as the current financial system) continually steer into crises. Antifragile entities do not suffer harm from black swan events; instead, they profit from them. They incur only minor losses but achieve proportionally significant gains.
