The term black swan comes from the Western cultural assumption that 'All swans are white'. In that context, a black swan was a metaphor for something that could not exist.

In this book, Nassim Nicholas Taleb regards many scientific discoveries as black swans—"undirected" and unpredicted.

A black swan is a highly improbable event with three principal characteristics: It is unpredictable; it carries a massive impact;

This is a book about how to think more effectively to arrive at better decisions.  It uses the latest findings from neuroscience to help us decide what type of thinking to adopt according to the scenario we are facing.

We can understand how people think and design choice environments that make it easier for people to choose what is best for themselves – a nudge in the right direction without restricting freedom of choice.
