Nassim Taleb: my rules for life

Guardian excerpt
He gives all sorts of examples of this in the book. 
A clerk in a large company is fragile as he has only 
one source of income. A taxi driver is antifragile. A banker is fragile. 
A prostitute is antifragile. General Petraeus is fragile: a single indiscretion 
was enough to destroy his career. Boris Johnson is antifragile: a whole string of scandals has actually enhanced his reputation. "He's smart enough to present himself as sort of 'This is how I am'," says Taleb. London, too, seems to be antifragile. The global financial crisis was just another boost: a safe haven for foreign real-estate cash.
