《黑天鵝效應》作者重磅新作!Skin in the Game 據傳為投資大師巴菲特名言,意指經理人投資公司股票,企業由利害與共的人管理,風險因而有效降低。致力研究不確定性和機率的思想家塔雷伯,早在《反脆弱》一書即提出「切身利害」的概念;新書直指生活中隱藏的種種不對稱,如何影響社會公平正義;輔以作者在哲、史、科學及金融方面的豐富知識背景,令人大開眼界。

'The hottest thinker in the world' (The Times) is back with a new book about why we should only trust those who have something to lose

Is the pope atheist? Why can a stubborn minority easily end up ruling? Should you take advice from a salesperson? This book is all about why having skin in the game matters. For a society to function properly, those who benefit should also risk something and those who risk something should benefit. Full of philosophical tales and practical stories, Skin in the Game offers a key rule to live by: do not do to others what you don't want them to do to you, with its practical extension: never take advice from someone who gives advice for a living.
