Nassim Nicholas Taleb wrote this book about randomness and uncertainty, which Taleb says are a single idea. The basic idea in the Black Swan is not to attempt to predict Black Swan (out of the blue) events, but to put strength into negative events that happen and being able to exploit positive events. The book title is inspired by the story about the discovery of the Australian back swan, when everyone in the world assumed all swans were white.
