Antifragile: Things that Gain from Disorder by Nassim Nicholas Taleb (Reason why: Most people read it only once and barely scratched the surface. Instead, it’s like a system of pumps. You read it once, you build one pump. The second time you read it, you have a pump helping you extracting knowledge. And build a second, higher pump. And so on.)
The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb (Similar reason as above)
If Better is Possible by John Buchanan (My recommendation)
