Incerto
Antifragile is a standalone book in Nassim Nicholas Taleb's landmark Incerto series, an investigation of opacity, luck, uncertainty, probability, human error, risk, and decision-making in a world we don't understand. The other books in the series are Fooled by Randomness, The Black Swan, and The Bed of Procrustes.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the bestselling author of The Black Swan and one of the foremost thinkers of our time, reveals how to thrive in an uncertain world.

Just as human bones get stronger when subjected to stress and tension, and rumors or riots intensify when someone tries to repress them, many things in life benefit from stress, disorder, volatility, and turmoil. What Taleb has identified and calls "antifragile" is that category of things that not only gain from chaos but need it in order to survive and flourish.

In The Black Swan, Taleb showed us that highly improbable and unpredictable events underlie almost everything about our world. In Antifragile, Taleb stands uncertainty on its head, making it desirable, even necessary, and proposes that things be built in an antifragile manner. The antifragile is beyond the resilient or robust. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better and better.

Furthermore, the antifragile is immune to prediction errors and protected from adverse events. Why is the city-state better than the nation-state, why is debt bad for you, and why is what we call "efficient" not efficient at all? Why do government responses and social policies protect the strong and hurt the weak? Why should you write your resignation letter before even starting on the job? How did the sinking of the Titanic save lives? The book spans innovation by trial and error, life decisions, politics, urban planning, war, personal finance, economic systems, and medicine. And throughout, in addition to the street wisdom of Fat Tony of Brooklyn, the voices and recipes of ancient wisdom, from Roman, Greek, Semitic, and medieval sources, are loud and clear.

Antifragile is a blueprint for living in a Black Swan world.

Erudite, witty, and iconoclastic, Taleb's message is revolutionary: The antifragile, and only the antifragile, will make it.

Long Island, New York (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: Rachel stands at the stove about to throw some spaghetti into a pot of boiling water. The radio announcer just said that there had been a horrible and bloody train wreck on the Long Island Railroad this Thanksgiving Eve, 1950. Matt and Tommy were on the evening train returning home from a day in New York City.

Before this day is over, Rachel potentially faces a future as a widow and single mother of three, if she is able to keep from losing her mind.

WELCOME TO MINEOLA spans the next fifty years of Rachel’s life. The story is character-driven and is told from the perspective of several key players as the author "hands the microphone" over to different characters to add their points of view.

Rachel and Matt arrive in Long Island, after being reunited at the end of World War II. They are content to participate in the neighborhood barbecues and card games typical of suburban living in the late 1940's. Although submerging themselves in their new lifestyle and enjoying the family celebrations, Rachel finds that she misses the women in the City brownstone who sustained her during the war. She is devastated when one of them takes her own life. Rachel's strength is further challenged as she comes face to face with her husband's suspected infidelity; the loss of her mother; her neighbor's shocking anti-Semitic behavior; the birth of her fourth child; and a dear friend's stroke.

She is tested further on the day one of her dear children disappears under the waves at Jones Beach and finally she is shattered on that average day in November when she hears a life-altering radio announcement.

Her children grow up, pursue diverse careers, fall in love and begin their own families, counting on Rachel's encouragement and support. The family matriarch is always there to lean on offering her sage advice and her continual strength and presence, until a New Year's Eve that brings sorrow to all that love her.

This is the kind of book you want to tuck in your bag to read on the commuter train. It is smart and entertaining appealing especially to readers interested in stories that contain real historic events experienced through the characters they come to love.

Hashtag Histories (8 Book Series)
From Book 1: What if there had been social media during World War II?

The story begins with the announcement of, and reactions to, the death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and follows the thoughts and actions of the main participants through the capture of Vienna, the Battle of Seelow Heights, the liberation of the concentration camps, the Battle of Berlin, the death of Hitler and the eventual surrender of Reich forces.

Die Wahrheit aufgedeckt (Reihe in 5 Bänden)
Aus Band 1: In diesem Band:
1. Die Illuminaten/Khazaren-Mafia/Rothschild-Zyonisten und die Neue Welt Ordnung (New World Order)
2. Die Freimaurer
3. Die Jesuiten
4. Symbole und Zeichen

DIE WAHRHEIT AUFGEDECKT ist sowohl außergewöhnlich als auch einzigartig. Dies ist das einzig bisher bekannte Werk, das die gängigsten Thesen, Verschwörungstheorien und Verschwörungstheoretiker in einem Gesamtwerk in mehreren Bänden aufzeigt.

Es handelt sich um ein Meisterstück in der Zusammenfügung aller Theorien und aller Theoretiker. Nur wenn man all diese Verflechtungen von Personen, Gruppierungen, Firmen und den Weltführern der Wirtschaft, Politik, Religion und Wissenschaft sowie der Medienlandschaft und Hollywood erkannt hat und diese Punkte Stück für Stück zusammengefügt hat bekommt man einen gesamten Überblick über das ganze Weltgeschehen und kann erkennen wie, nach immer dem selben Drehbuch, Macht und Kontrolle über die Menschheit von einer sehr kleinen Gruppe ausgeübt wird. Es ermöglicht auch die Verbindung zwischen Personen und Ereignissen herzustellen, die auf den ersten Blick überhaupt nichts miteinander zu tun haben, die dann aber bei genauerer Betrachtung das große Puzzle ergeben, das zusammengesetzt werden muss. Nur wenn man alle Teile dieses Mosaiks zusammensetzt, bekommt man ein überdimensionales Bild des Ganzen.

Derek Barclay behandelt fast alle bekannten und gängigsten Verschwörungstheorien und auch solche die nur als Verschwörung gehandelt werden, aber mittlerweile bei weitem schon der Realität entsprechen anstatt einer Verschwörung. Die Globale Verschwörung von George Orwell ist nachweisbar keine Theorie mehr, sondern ist zur puren Realität geworden. Ein Netzwerk von den immer gleichen Familien, die zum Teil bis auf mehrere tausende Jahre zurückverfolgt werden können, manipulieren bis zum heutigen Tage, unsere Welt nach ihren Vorstellungen und versuchen mit aller Gewalt den letzten Kampf zu gewinnen den sie noch benötigen um Ihre Ziele der Weltherrschaft an sich zu reisen.

Doch dank der vielen Forschern und sogenannten Verschwörungstheoretikern und des Internet ist es gelungen eine immer größer werdende Anzahl von Menschen davon zu unterrichten und »aufzuwecken« um diese Personen und Familien und Firmen nicht mehr im dunkeln alleine und geheim operieren zu lassen, sondern diese an die Öffentlichkeit zu zerren und deren Verbindungen und Machenschaften aufzudecken. Dieses Werk sollte auch dazu beitragen, dass diese Gruppierungen, Familien, Politiker, Firmen und Organisatoren der Neuen Welt Ordnung ihr Ziel nicht erreichen eine »Eine-Welt-Herrschaft« zu installieren und die ganze Menschheit vollständig zu versklaven. Jeder neue Leser dieses Werkes wird dazu beitragen, das dieser Planet wieder das wird was er einmal war und wir wieder in Frieden, Harmonie und Freiheit auf dieser Erde leben können und unseren nachfolgenden Generationen wieder einen intakten Planeten hinterlassen können.

45EPIC Hero's Odyssey Mythology Physics (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: Regarding the award-winning physicist Dr. Elliot McGucken at Princeton University, the late John Archibald Wheeler stated, "More intellectual curiosity, versatility and yen for physics than Elliot McGucken's I have never seen in any senior or graduate student. . . Originality, powerful motivation, and a can-do spirit make me think that McGucken is a top bet."

Dr. E would go on to heal the blind with his NSF-funded, award-winning Ph.D. dissertation which also laid down the foundations of Light Time Dimension Theory. Over the years, LTD Theory added foundational *physical* postulates, principles, and equations en route to becoming numerous books, with this one forming the simple, illustrated introduction.

In this commonsense volume penned for the layman and advanced scientist alike, Dr. E's LTD Theory provides a unifying, foundational *physical* model underlying relativity, quantum mechanics, time and all its arrows and asymmetries, and the second law of thermodynamics. The detailed diagrams demonstrate that the great mysteries of quantum mechanical nonlocality, entanglement, and probability naturally arise from the very same principle that fosters relativity alongside light's constant velocity, the equivalence of mass and energy, and time dilation.

One fine afternoon while Dr. E was lunching with J.A. Wheeler at the Princeton Institute for Advanced Study (IAS), a bespectacled gentleman joined them. Wheeler introduced the fellow as Ed Witten--one of the leading pioneers of string theory and inventor of M-theory. Dr. E had been contemplating pursuing string theory, but there were some finer details he could not wrap his head around. "Great!" Dr. E thought to himself, "This guy can help me along my odyssey!"

So halfway through lunch Dr. E asked Dr. Witten, “What are string theory’s postulates, principles, and equations?”

Witten thought about it, smiled, and said, that well, it depended on who you asked, and well, it was a young theory.

So Dr. E followed up with, “When do you think string theory might get postulates, principles, and equations?” Ed stopped smiling.

And so, instead of studying string theory, Dr. E pursued LTD Theory on that “road less taken,” healing the blind along the way with his award-winning dissertation titled Multiple Unit Artificial Retina Chipset to Aid the Visually Impaired and Enhanced CMOS Phototransistors. In the latter part of the dissertation, Dr. E placed the first iteration of LTD Theory, born of his days studying with the great PJE Peebles, Nobel Laureate Joseph Taylor, and J.A. Wheeler. Like Einstein and Feynman, they were all rugged, kind, intense men who valued hands-on physics and *physical* reality over mere math and mysticism--over spurious speculation and outlandish hype.

Unlike string theory, inflation, multiverse mania, and LQG, LTD Theory is a *physical* theory in the spirit of Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Faraday, Maxwell, and Einstein. At Princeton Dr. E learned to think of the geometry of spacetime as a physical entity which could bend, curve, and move. He learned to think of the photon as a real, physical entity described as probabilistic, spherically-symmetric wavefront expanding at velocity c. Dr. E learned to think of entanglement as a real, *physical* effect connecting distant entities in an instantaneous relationship, and he learned to think of the second law of thermodynamics not as a mere mathematical formula, but as a foundational, physical law governing the universe. And by thinking of these diverse phenomena in terms of *physical* pictures, Dr. E conceived of LTD Theory--the simple, physical model common to them all.

Hidden In Plain Sight (7 Book Series)
From Book 1: You never knew theoretical physics could be so simple! In this exciting and significant book, Andrew Thomas clearly illustrates the simplicity which lies behind nature at its fundamental level. It is revealed how all unifications in physics have been based on incredibly simple ideas.

Using a logical approach, it is explained how the great 20th century theories of relativity and quantum mechanics share a common base, and how they can be linked using an idea so simple that anyone can understand it.

An idea which is so simple it has been hidden in plain sight.
