" I liked the ideas that were presented. Taleb makes you think and shows you the thought habits you have fallen into. However, to me the book felt as an accusation of scientist/academics, who allegedly think too highly of themselves, ignore common sense and do research that is not useful in practice. In my perspective, that is a very exagorated, limited and unnuanced view of academia . Taleb might want to update as well, e.g. He might want to discuss evolutionary economics, which solves a lot of his critique on neoclassical economics. "
