61 Books Nassim Taleb Recommends you Read in his Own Words

The first thing I shall do, as soon as the money arrives, is to buy some Greek authors; after that, I shall buy clothes…

Fortunately I know how to fast my body with ease and grace for days on end…thereby I need spend less on food and don’t need bigger clothes. It goes not so easy with fasting my mind–it’s capable of binging deeply on great and wise thoughts from others.

The savings in not feeding my body pays for episodic indulgences of buying books that contain such thoughts… and the buffet of titles you just slapped on the table is consuming more than all the savings I earned from three weeks without food in January.

My waist size and wardrobe will remain at 30" for awhile longer, it can’t be helped…
